AUTOMOTIVE: Nissan names Uchida as top executive


Nissan has tapped the head of its China business, Makoto Uchida, as its new president and chief executive, to help lead a recovery from the leadership crisis and sinking profitability that followed the arrest of its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn, last year. Uchida is replacing Hiroto Saikawa, who resigned after acknowledg­ing receiving dubious income. The Japanese automaker announced Uchida’s appointmen­t late Tuesday in a hastily called half-hour news conference by board members Yasushi Kimura and Masakazu Toyoda.
