As part of a series of senior management appointments the automaker has made in its North American organization, Nissan Canada will have a new director of dealer network development effective July 1.

Appointed to the position is Ken Hearn, currently regional general manager at Nissan Canada.

Hearn replaces Vincent Boerhof, who became general manager for global dealer network power in April.

Hearn will report to Nissan Canada president Joni Paiva and will be based in Mississauga, Ontario.

Nissan also revealed changes in its corporate communications, Nissan sales and marketing and Infiniti Americas, and purchasing departments, which are detailed further here.
