As the region continues to become increasingly important to Nissan, we are focusing on offering vehicles that are tailored to the needs of our customers in these markets and I'm confident that his experience will ensure that we continue to be an important player in the growth of the region's automotive industry.”
 
Markus' expertise as a Managing Director in the automotive industry has been built on 20 years of international experience across Europe and the Middle East with roles in Sales, Marketing, Product Planning and Business Planning at headquarters and with national sales companies and importers. Leithe takes the reins at INFINITI Middle East following his role as the Managing Director of Commercial Operations for General Motors.
