Within RNBV, the Alliance set up a dedicated team in May 2009 to maximize synergies from both companies. It answers to the Alliance Board and reports directly to Carlos Ghosn and from a functional stand-point to the director of the business function concerned in each company.
The team comprises 16 members: 5 Alliance Managing Directors and 11 Alliance Directors.
The Managing Director of a global Alliance function is responsible for managing and overseeing this function.
The Alliance Managing Directors are responsible for the operations of both partners.
The Alliance Directors do not lead functions, but must ensure that their activities contribute to the development of stronger synergies. Alliance Directors may oppose any measures taken by Renault or Nissan that run counter to the development of synergies, referring the matter to the executive committee of the company concerned or even, ultimately, the Alliance Board.
This team is focused on the following priority areas: purchasing, industrial sourcing, common platforms and parts, powertrains, global logistics, IS/IT, research and advanced, zero emission business. Support functions, cooperation with Daimler.
