Nissan marketing VP exits

Jon Brancheau, the vice president of marketing communications and media for Nissan North America, has told his bosses he is leaving the company just five months after his job title was broadened. Brancheau, who came to Franklin-based Nissan from General Motors in mid-2008, says the decision to depart is his and spokesman Dave Reuter tells Automotive News the company "tried to talk him into staying."
