Dude saved both Renault and Nissan. It appears that lack of oversight is never a good thing:
"One of the biggest car industry bosses in the world - Carlos Ghosn, chairman of Renault Nissan - has been arrested and is under investigation for 'serious misconduct' in how he reports his pay, it has emerged."
‘I feel despair, indignation and resentment,’ Nissan chief executive Hiroto Saikawa told an emergency news conference in Japan on 19 November, the day news broke. ‘As the details are disclosed I believe that people will feel the same way as I feel today.'
'Too much authority was given to one person in terms of governance... I have to say that this is a dark side of the Ghosn era which lasted for a long time.' The CEO said he was still pondering whether Ghosn was 'a charismatic figure or a tyrant.'
"Unconfirmed local reports claim Ghosn under-reported an amount totalling 5 billion yen (£34 million) over a five-year period from 2011. Nissan has yet to reveal any amounts or details, but has admitted that 'numerous other significant acts of misconduct [including] personal use of company assets' were being investigated."
"Ghosn is also accused of having company-paid houses in four countries, according to Japanese media."
