Nissan announced the promotion of Marc-André Nault, currently regional general manager, Eastern Region Nissan Canada, to the position of vice-president, sales operations, Nissan Canada. Nault succeeds Steve Milette, who became president of Nissan Canada Inc. on May 1, 2019. Nault will assume this role effective immediately and report directly to Milette.
Nault joined Nissan in 2013 and held various progressive positions in Sales Operations for Nissan’s Eastern Region, based in Kirkland, Quebec. Nault is bilingual in French and English and has more than 20 years of experience in the automotive industry.
“Whether he’s on the showroom floor or in a regional office, Marc-André brings tireless energy to his work, and leaves a trail of success in his wake. Marc-André’s accomplishments are attributed to not only his innate leadership skills, but his strong business acumen and customer-centric mindset,” says Steve Milette, president of Nissan Canada Inc. “Since Marc-André joined Nissan Canada in 2013, the Eastern Region’s market share has increased from 5.1 per cent to 8.4 per cent, and we’re confident he will lead the national sales team to continue Nissan’s sales progression in his new role.”
Nault’s replacement will be named at a later date.
