After the announcement that Johan de Nysschen was stepping down last week, the former CEO of Audi is on the move, and will take the top spot at Infiniti, his official title being senior vice president of Nissan Motor Company in charge of the Infiniti division. 

De Nysschen will report to Andy Palmer, Nissan’s exec vice president in charge of product planning, and will be located at Infiniti’s new global headquarters located in Hong Kong.

After 19 years with Audi, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn is counting on his experience to help build Infiniti into a bigger global player. At Audi, he worked in South Africa, Japan and America, and started his career with BMW in South Africa.

“We have exciting and ambitious plans for improving the Infiniti brand including introducing new models in all markets where premium customer demand exists,” Andy Palmer said.

    Infiniti financial services suck.  They damaged my credit.  Their products are great but their business practices are not, so I will never buy one of their products again.  Can’t take a chance of the damage they can cause to one’s credit
