Two of the top executives at Mitsubishi are stepping down as the company is shaken by the scandal surrounding its fuel-economy figures. However the chairman and CEO is keeping his seat – at least until Nissan can replace him.
Long-struggling Mitsubishi Motors is reportedly preparing for a changing of the guard at home. According to Reuters, Osamu Masuko will step aside in favor of Tesuro Aikawa, currently the company's managing director. Masuko won't be leaving the fold entirely, however – he will take the role of chairman, displacing Takashi Nishioka, who will resign. The shakeup has not been confirmed by Mitsubishi, but word is that the changes will take effect April 1.
