A Message from Dan Thompson (departing Nissan Australia CEO) Hi Guys,
As some of you would already know, Nissan Australia CEO Dan Thompson has departed and will be starting a new position as Vice President of Finance in Nissan Europe (Switzerland). The new Nissan Australia CEO will be Bill Peffer. (read the news article ]HERE).
Dan has done a lot to the Nissan brand in Australia in the 4 years he has been here and he was also one of the major contributors to Nissan Australia adopting the direct contact with Nissan owners and fans (like our forum) through Facebook and other media. This is a good step forward indeed and we hope it continues.
I have emailed Dan a couple of days ago to thank him for his support to the Australia X-TRAIL Forum and wish him all the best in his new role in Europe. This was his response to me and all members of the X-TRAIL Forum:
Thanks for the kind words below. You’re right, I’ll be watching our continued success in Oz from a far. It’s been a great 4 years in Oz, and I appreciate all the support you & the X-Trail forum have provided to the Nissan brand.
It’s passionate Nissan owners like yourself that make Nissan a truly special brand.
I’ll make sure to let Bill know about the Australian X-Trail Forum. Keep up the good work.
I will contact Bill as soon as he settles in his new role, as I am sure he has a LOT to catch-up on
