SENIOR global Infiniti executive and expat Australian Chris Mallios is preparing to return Down Under at the conclusion of the luxury brand’s relocation from Hong Kong to parent Nissan’s global headquarters in Japan.
The shift in operations, which was announced last year, is expected to be wrapped up next month – pending the lifting of COVID-19 travel restrictions into Japan – and Mr Mallios is now looking to return to Australia with his family rather than relocate to Yokohama.
He told GoAuto that personal family requirements meant that his preference was to return to Australia after four years abroad rather than move to Japan, and as a result he had decided to leave the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
