Carlos Ghosn resigned on Wednesday night as president and CEO of the Renault group, French finance minister Bruno Le Maire told Bloomberg in an interview with Davos's World Economic Forum.
The proposals for the new administration of the company are Jean-Dominique Senard, for the position of president, and Thierry Bollore for the position of CEO. The board meets in the morning to vote. The new team is tasked with reconstruction of links with Nissan and retaining Renault's position within the Alliance.

This resolution of the situation was urged by the continuation of Ghosn on arrest, the prosecutors making it impossible to release him for warranty. In spite of Ghosn's defense position with the help of the best lawyers in Japan, the judges were not convinced of Nissan's previous arguments and said there was a danger that he would flee and try to destroy any evidence.
A mixed French delegation, the Government / Renault, was present in Tokyo to discuss the situation with the Japanese executive and the Nissan, but they would probably have been allowed to speak to Ghosn. Non-official information talks about rapid negotiation of resignation conditions, including financial compensation and retirement, which Carlos Ghosn seems to have accepted and signed his resignation on Wednesday.
