French carmaker Renault on Tuesday named former Volkswagen's Seat brand executive Luca de Meo as its new chief executive, as Renault moves to create a new management in the post-Ghosn era and shore up its alliance with Nissan.
His appointment will be effective on July 1.
Italian-born De Meo had served as the chairman of Seat's executive committee for four years, overseeing a resurgence in the Barcelona-based company's sales and boosting its prominence within the Volkswagen group.
