Who is Jordi?
Jordi is currently Vice President, Sales for Nissan Europe, a position he has held since May 2017. In this role, he is responsible for European sales operations, processes, organisation, and network development across the entire region. He has a number of regional teams reporting into him centrally, and much of his time is spent working with the sales teams of the regional business units across various markets.

This is of course focused on Europe, but I am always in close contact with our global headquarters team in Yokohama, Japan".
