Espoo, Finland — Nissan has appointed Jean-Philippe Roux as Managing Director of Nissan Nordic Europe, leading sales and marketing operations in markets that clearly represent a time of transformation and electrification within the car industry. Roux will start 1 April and will replace Christian Costaganna, current Managing Director who has been appointed Managing Director for Nissan Iberia.

Jean-Philippe Roux will be based at Nissan's Nordic European headquarters in Espoo, Finland, and will report to Mayra Gonzales, Divisional Vice President Marketing & Sales Europe.

Roux joined Nissan in 2004 as a regional director in the French office and has since held a variety of roles across the AMIEO region, including Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom. He has a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, brand engagement, customer quality and dealer development, and in his existing role as Vice President Distribution, AMIEO, Jean-Philippe has been responsible for the strategy and development of Nissan's distribution model and has also secured good knowledge of the Nordic region and set-up.

Jean-Phillipe Roux is ready to take on the task and says: "I am very happy to take on the position as Managing Director for the Nordic markets. I have had the opportunity to work with many in this region over the past year and look forward to working more closely with a very talented team that has a deep experience with electrification and business transformation. The Nordic markets to a large extent represent the future, and I am happy to be able to be part of the further development and grow Nissan as a brand, working together with the team and our important business partners across the Nordic countries".

Leon Dorssers, Senior Vice President, Nissan AMIEO region says: "The Nordic markets bring together many of Nissan's business priorities, from electrification to business transformation, and are home to more Nissan EVs than anywhere else. Under Christian's leadership we have embarked on many strategic projects to embrace the major shift taking place in our industry, embracing new distribution models and enhancing our customer experience. With Jean-Philippe's appointment we can look forward to further progress and delivering even more exciting & electrified vehicles to our customers."

We wish Christian all the best in his new position and for his tireless work to support the Nissan business in the Nordic and Baltic countries over the last almost three years. Christian Costaganna says, "It has been a privilege for me to lead the amazing team we have in Nissan Nordic Europe. During this journey, we have been growing sales and customer satisfaction, regaining EV leadership with Ariya, launched several new models, while delivering distribution transformation projects in Sweden and Baltics. I had the opportunity to meet great people, discover such diverse cultures and beautiful countries which I will always keep in my heart".
