Nissan Motor named Peyman Kargar senior vice president and chairman of Infiniti effective 1 June, 2020.

Reporting to Christian Vandenhende, vice chief performance officer and chief quality officer at Nissan, Kargar will step into the role as the premium brand "begins a product renaissance from its new headquarters in Yokohama, Japan", a statement said.

"Peyman is a proven, global leader joining the Infiniti team in a very exciting time for the brand. I look forward to seeing how he will usher in the next chapter for Infiniti," said Vandenhende.

Kargar has 23 years of experience in the auto industry, primarily with the Renault-Nissan Alliance. He has held various positions including engineering, manufacturing, project management, quality, sales, marketing and business development.

Most recently, Kargar was chairman and senior vice-president of Africa, Middle East and India Region for Nissan, where he worked with 80 countries and unique markets.

Kargar replaces Mike Colleran who is senior vice president, Nissan marketing and sales, US.

Colleran worked at Infiniti for two years laying the groundwork for a brand reinvention and the organization's move to Yokohama, Japan in early April.
