Biography of Carlos Ghosn 
Carlos Ghosn, KBE (born March 9, 1954) is a French-Lebanese-Brazilian businessman born in Porto Velho, Brazil, who is currently the Chairman and CEO of Paris-based Renault, Chairman and CEO of Japan-based Nissan, and Chairman of Russian automobile manufacturer AvtoVAZ.

After his radical restructuring of Renault that returned that company to profitability in the late 1990s Ghosn became known as "Le Cost Killer". In the early 2000s, for orchestrating one of the auto industry's most aggressive downsizing campaigns and spearheading the turnaround of Nissan from its near bankruptcy in 1999, he earned the nickname "Mr. Fix It".

Following the Nissan financial turnaround, in 2002 Fortune awarded him Asia Businessman of the Year. In 2003 Fortune identified him as one of the 10 most powerful people in business outside the U.S., and its Asian edition voted him Man of the Year. and the third most respected business leader in 2004 and in 2005. He quickly achieved celebrity status in Japan and in the business world, and his life has been chronicled in a Japanese manga comic book. Ghosn has been asked to run at least two other automakers, General Motors and Ford. His decision to spend €4 billion (more than $5 billion) so Renault and Nissan could jointly develop an entire lineup of electric cars including the Nissan Leaf, billed as "the world's first affordable zero-emission car", is one of the four subjects of the 2011 documentary Revenge of the Electric Car.

Early life and education
Ghosn's grandfather Bichara Ghosn emigrated from Lebanon to Brazil at the age of 13, eventually settling in remote Guaporé, Rondônia, near the border between Brazil and Bolivia. Bichara Ghosn was an entrepreneur and eventually headed several companies, in fields including the rubber trade, the sale and purchase of agricultural products, and aviation. His son Jorge Ghosn married a Nigerian-born woman whose family also came from Lebanon, and they settled in the Rondônia capital of Porto Velho.

Carlos Ghosn was born on March 9, 1954 in Porto Velho. When he was about two years old he became sick after drinking unsanitary water, and his mother moved with him to Rio de Janeiro. He graduated with university engineering degrees from the École Polytechnique in 1974 and the École des Mines de Paris in 1978.

During the economic crisis in January 2009, he gave up his annual bonus (1.392 million Euros for 2007) because for him "a company's performance is not at desired level"
