Warrendale, Pennsylvania – The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Foundation has announced it will present its 2007 Manufacturing Leadership Award to Carlos Ghosn, President and CEO of Nissan Motor Company, at its annual banquet.
The award recognizes individuals who have made meaningful contributions to the development of the automotive industry. Nominees must have achieved a significant level of success in their manufacturing careers, demonstrated innovation and risk taking, and established a new direction or developed a position that challenged their industry. Nominees must also have made contributions outside the automotive industry, such as through community education or philanthropic activities.
“I am honoured to receive this award from the SAE Foundation, and I accept it on behalf of the 220,000 talented Nissan employees around the world whose performance made this recognition possible,” Ghosn says. “Nissan is a learning company, and we commend the SAE Foundation’s mission to promote science and technology education in today’s classrooms. By supporting the Foundation’s initiatives, we hope to inspire students to create value for generations to come.”
