FameRank: 4

"Carlos Ghosn", KBE is a France/French-Lebanese people/Lebanese-Lebanese Brazilian/Brazilian businessman born in Porto Velho, Brazil, who is currently the Chairman and Chief executive officer/CEO of Paris-based Renault, Chairman and CEO of Japan-based Nissan Motors/Nissan, and Chairman of Russian automobile manufacturer AvtoVAZ. Ghosn is also Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the strategic partnership overseeing Nissan and Renault through a unique cross-shareholding agreement. The Alliance, which includes AvtoVAZ, has held approximately 10% of the global market share from 2010 through to 2014, and as of 2014 is one of the top four automobile groups worldwide.

After his radical restructuring of Renault that returned that company to profitability in the late 1990s Ghosn became known as "Le Cost Killer". In the early 2000s, for orchestrating one of the auto industry's most aggressive downsizing campaigns and spearheading the turnaround of Nissan from its near bankruptcy in 1999, he earned the nickname "Mr. Fix It".
