Nissan Motor's newly-appointed vice-chief operating officer Jun Seki has resigned after less than a month in the job.
Mr Seki was expected to drive Nissan global recovery after a disastrous 2019. He is widely believed to have had a major disagreement with newly-appointed CEO Makoto Uchida over how to deal with alliance partner Renault.
In a statement, Nissan said the company has accepted Seki's notification to step-down.
Nissan said has been on a 'steady path to regain trust, restore the company's performance and work on its business transformation, and is already seeing progress. Under the new top management, Nissan will continue to focus on these key areas, which remain our highest priority'.
