Nissan’s new design chief on following a legend

Not a partial about holding over tellurian pattern slip final month, that includes pattern for all things Nissan, such as dealerships, bureau buildings and open displays. After scarcely 30 years with Nissan, Albaisa, 52, says he is prepared for all that. What’s daunting is a partial about stuffing a boots of his mentor, Shiro Nakamura, a automaker’s pattern arch given 1999. Nakamura delivered scarcely dual decades of Nissa.

Key Takeaways:

  • Not the part about taking over global design oversight last month, which includes design for all things Nissan, such as dealerships, office buildings and public displays. After nearly 30 years with Nissan, Albaisa, 52, says he is ready for all that.
  • What’s daunting is the part about filling the shoes of his mentor, Shiro Nakamura, the automaker’s design chief since 1999.
  • Nakamura delivered nearly two decades of Nissan’s history, including the first Murano, the 370Z, GT-R, Juke, Infiniti Q50 and FX35 crossover, now called the QX70.

“Albaisa is the automaker’s first non-Japanese design director. The historic moment leads him to ponder the difference between his design instincts and all of those who came before him at the company.”
