TAC Talk: Hans Greimel & William Sposato

Two journalists catalog Carlos Ghosn’s dramatic rise and stunning fall.


You may have followed the news of the ex-Nissan boss’s unexpected detention and secret agent-like escape from Japan. Now, go behind the headlines with two Tokyo-based journalists who followed the case beat by beat.

At this lecture and Q&A, Hans Greimel and Will Sposato delve into the multi-year saga that saw Ghosn rise to the top ranks of Japan’s corporate world before the precipitous fall that would follow.

Co-authors of the newly released Collision Course: Carlos Ghosn and the Culture Wars That Upended an Auto Empire, Greimel and Sposato presents the most in-depth and nuanced analysis of the early boardroom victories, questionable accounting and remarkable escape from Japanese authorities   that ultimately landed Ghosn in de facto exile in Lebanon.

With the enigmatic businessman pondering his next move, this TAC Talk offers Members the best account of what twists and turns this unpredictable story may take next.
