What makes Carlos Ghosn a Global Shaker?

Carlos Ghosn is the Brazilian-Lebanese-French businessman who has become celebrated for turning around the fortunes of struggling automotive companies. He was dubbed “Le Cost Killer” after transforming Renault in the early noughties into a profitable company, and as “Mr. Fix It” after spearheading the drive which saved Nissan from bankruptcy in the late nineties.

Widely recognised as one of the most able and influential businessmen in the world, Ghosn was described as “the hardest-working man in the brutally competitive global car business” by Forbes Magazine.

Amongst the companies threatening to pull its operations out of Britain if it quits the EU is automotive giant, Renault. The company’s CEO, Carlos Ghosn is rumoured to have struck some kind of deal with Theresa May which has resulted in the company continuing its operations in Sunderland, England.

The details of the deal are not yet public.
