Nissan rejigs top management, Guillaume Sicard to head India

Snapshot: Guillaume Sicard will now be looking after the Nissan's operations in the country including the business development.

It looks like a festival of top management re-shuffling is going on. After the Maruti, Tata and the Ford doing reshuffling in their top management, Nissan India has also joined the wagon. They had appointed Guillaume Sicard for the role of President, India Operations, effective 01 October, 2014. In his earlier role, Sicard has served as the Deputy President for Nissan in India since July, 2014 and will now directly report to Takashi Hata, Senior Vice President of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. (Africa, Middle East and India region).

Guillaume Sicard will now be looking after the Nissan's operations in the country which will include the business development for Nissan, as he will expand the sales network in India for both Nissan and Datsun brand. He will also be looking forward to launch new products along with handling the only manufacturing plant of Nissan in India, based at Chennai.

On the appointment of Sicard, Mr. Hata said “Guillaume Sicard will make a significant contribution to Nissan. He will take an encompassing role and lead our continued focus on delivering the best products and ensuring satisfaction for our customers in India. Our goal is to become a major player in this important and growing market.

At the same time, I would like to thank Kenichiro Yomura for his valuable contribution in India. Under his direction we have grown our sales and launched key products including the Terrano, the new Sunny and the Datsun GO. He has developed our sales, marketing and service operations I look forward to welcoming him back to Japan, where he will continue to play a critical role in the growth of our business across Africa, the Middle East and India.”, Hata added.

Kenichiro Yomura, whom Mr. Sicard had overtaken, will return to Japan, to be appointed as the General Manager, African Business Management Department, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Nissan will also announce the name of the new Managing Director of Nissan Motor India Private Ltd, later who will report to Sicard.

Mr. Sicard will have a huge task ahead, to push the sales ahead in India, as no model of the Nissan is doing too good viz-a-viz its sister concern, Renault.
