      Nissan's Ghosn crisis

      Renault nudges Ghosn aide aside in executive shake-up

      Nissan partner looks to leave scandal behind and tackle tech challenges

      PARIS -- French carmaker Renault has announced the resignations of three executives, including one aide to embattled former chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn, as the auto group looks to move forward under a new management structure.

      Mouna Sepehri, who worked closely with Ghosn as executive vice president for the CEO's office, and two others will step down on April 1, the company said on Wednesday.

      Ghosn, who faces financial misconduct and breach of trust charges in Japan, resigned as Renault's top executive in January. He had already been dismissed from his other roles as chairman of Renault's alliance partners, Nissan Motor and Mitsubishi Motors. While he was released on bail in Tokyo on March 5, after 108 days in detention, his legal fight is just beginning and the automakers are rushing to turn the page. 

      Renault Executive Vice President Jean-Christophe Kugler, who is believed to be on bad terms with CEO Thierry Bollore after the two vied to succeed Ghosn as CEO, will leave the company. Executive Vice President Bruno Ancelin is retiring.

      Sepehri's resignation follows French media reports that she received 500,000 euros ($566,000) in questionable remuneration from a Renault joint venture with Nissan in the Netherlands. An internal probe of payments by the venture to Renault executives is also underway.

      Sepehri, a lawyer, used her expertise to help Ghosn with corporate acquisitions and other matters. Now, she will become a special adviser directly reporting to Bollore -- a move seen by some as a demotion.

      Meanwhile, Renault also announced seven new appointees to its executive committee. A spokesperson said the appointments are aimed at keeping up with the fast changes in the auto industry and accelerate the company's reforms.

      "With the support of this new team, on which I will rely, and all Groupe Renault employees, we will meet the challenges of the electric, connected and autonomous mobility of tomorrow," Bollore said in a statement.

      With Ghosn out, the three-way alliance is also transitioning to a new operational structure. The companies on Tuesday announced the launch of a new alliance operating board for discussing strategy, led by Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard.
