Krüger, most recently at BMW, replaces outgoing Johan de Nysschen

Infiniti will not be headless for much longer as the Japanese luxury brand has tipped Roland Krüger to replace Johan de Nysschen.

His most recent appointment was with BMW as senior vice president in charge of the German sales region. Krüger will become president of Infiniti and a senior vice president of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. He will report to Carlos Ghosn.

Prior to his time with BMW, Krüger, 48, worked as an interiors and exteriors designer for Mitsubishi Motors Europe and was senior designer of SMART interiors at Daimler Group.

The release does not state when Krüger will assume his new role at Infiniti.

Following de Nysschen’s exit from Infiniti, Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn installed Nissan head of product Andy Palmer in the luxury presidential seat. Palmer himself left the company shortly after de Nysschen to become CEO of Aston Martin, reportedly after the Briton had asked Nissan to purchase Aston Martin in 2012 and 2013.
