Gary Shapiro – President and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association

Good afternoon and welcome. Our guest today Mr. Carlos Ghosn is the leader of two global powerhouses in automotive technology: Nissan Motor Company and French automaker, Renault with more than 450,000 employees. Born in Brazil, he is a widely respected global business executive, fluent in Portuguese, Arabic, English and French. When he was named CEO of Renault Group in 2005, he became the very first person to run two global Fortune 500 companies simultaneously. In 2009, he had the title of Chairman of the Board of Renault. Mr. Ghosn is also the Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. This alliance has sold more than 8.5 million vehicles in 2015. That’s actually more than one in ten cars worldwide. And with Nissan’s acquisition of a controlling stake in October — a stake in Mitsubishi Motors in October, just a couple of months ago, that total should reach 10 million vehicles for the fiscal year 2016.
