Nissan Americas today announced senior leadership appointments in Nissan Latin America & the Caribbean and Corporate Communications for Nissan Americas. All changes are effective April 1. Kenneth Ramirez has been named director, Nissan Latin America & the Caribbean and Paula Angelo is appointed director, Corporate Communications, Nissan Americas.

Ramirez, 42, will be responsible for Nissan’s sales in Latin America, which cover 37 markets throughout Central and South America and the Caribbean. He will report to Shoichi Miyatani, corporate vice president, Nissan Latin America & the Caribbean. Ramirez joined Nissan from Motorola in 2002 and most recently was director of the Program Management Office for Nissan Mexico, with oversight for vehicle programs. His Nissan career has also included leadership positions in engineering and program management in the U.S., Japan and Mexico. Ramirez holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.


Angelo, 48, joined Nissan in 2007 and is currently director, Internal Communications, Nissan Americas. In her new role she will report to David Reuter, vice president, Corporate Communications, Nissan Americas, and will be responsible for all corporate communications activities including manufacturing communications, philanthropic efforts and crisis and strategic communications. Angelo has more than two decades of corporate communications and public affairs experience, most recently at Delphi Corp., and holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in public relations from Michigan State University.

“As we continue to align Nissan’s many operations across the Western hemisphere and build them into a single, growing and competitive Americas business unit, we will benefit from the talent and experience that Ken and Paula bring to their new assignments,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman, Nissan Americas.

Ramirez succeeds Hidenori Tsukamoto, who will return to Japan for a soon-to-be announced assignment with Nissan Motor Company, Ltd. During his tenure in the Americas, Tsukamoto was instrumental in growing Nissan’s market share in Latin America and contributed to a volume increase of more than 60 percent in Latin American countries. “We wish Hidenori much success as he returns to his new assignment in Japan. His leadership and expertise in our Latin American operations has driven Nissan to record sales and market share in the region,” Tavares said.

Angelo takes on the Corporate Communications responsibilities previously held by Reuter prior to his appointment as vice president, Corporate Communications.

In North America, Nissan’s operations include automotive styling, engineering, consumer and corporate financing, sales and marketing, distribution and manufacturing. Nissan is dedicated to improving the environment under the Nissan Green Program 2010 and has been recognized as a 2010 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency.
