A graduate of the Moscow power engineering Institute has long been in the automotive industry. To Nissan Dmitry Busurkin worked in the Russian representative office of Daimler.

With the launch of low-cost Datsun brand in Russia as head of the office in our country was a Frenchman Jerome This. Has not passed also two years as it was replaced by Russian. Now the head of Nissan subsidiary appointed Dmitry Busurkin, which since 2004 works in the concern Nissan Motor. He held the position of product Manager, strategic planning, and for monitoring the activities of the dealer and the post of sales Director. In his new position, he will oversee the development of the Datsun brand in Russia, including marketing, public relations, sales and after-sales service.

Jerome This will leave our country, as appointed Vice-President of the company Datsun in India.

The new leader will report to Philip Firstly, the head of the regional units of Nissan East. It should be noted that there was already a tendency in a crisis to key positions in the Russian offices appoint our countrymen, and foreigners are moving to a similar position in other countries. So, from the first of January at the helm of BMW in Russia — Elena Smirnova, and from the first of February, the Executive Director of «Hyundai Motor CIS» is Alexei Kalitsev. It seems that expats don’t want to spoil your resume poor performance of sales in the crisis, and for our hard times, on the contrary, a chance to prove themselves, and they know Russian realities much better.

In the first four months of this year, the Datsun sold in Russia 11 800 cars. Of them had more than two thousand on the hatchback mi-DO, which went on sale in March.

Your comment relative new assignment we gave Oleg Datskiv, Director of business development auto-dealer.ru. According to him, in the near future we will see more of Russians in key positions in the offices. This is due to the fact that our market is not strategically important to companies in addition, the high political risks (to recall almost complete care of the concern GM from Russia). In the crisis of missions need to cut costs, and detention of a foreigner in a managerial position comes at a price (rent housing, company car with a driver), in this respect, Russian is preferable. Do not forget about such key aspects as working with dealers who feel now is not the best way. Compatriots will be easier to establish contact and negotiate.
