Nissan Hunting for More Partnerships

Nissan Hunting for More PartnershipsNissan Hunting for More Partnerships

Nissan Motor Co. hardly seems like an automaker in need of more corporate tie-ups, with its alliance links to Renault and Mitsubishi, and a network of partnerships with Daimler AG of Germany, Avtovaz in Russia and China’s Dongfeng group. But Nissan is embarking on a global hunt to bring more high-tech startups into the fold. The executive leading the charge, Catherine Perez, a corporate vice president, readily admits she has no idea what kind of technology the search will unearth. But, she emphasizes, that is precisely the point, Automotive News reported. As the self-described “control tower” for Nissan’s latest midterm plan, Perez says remaining flexible on opportunities and allowing for unknowns will be the keys to Nissan’s success in the new era.
