LutzQuietmeyerNEWLutz Quietmeyer (pictured) has moved from his position as general manager for inbound logistics at the Renault-Nissan Alliance to take up a new role at the Renault Nissan Purchasing Organisation (RNPO). Quietmeyer is now working as regional sales and purchasing manager for body-in-white in Europe.

RNPO was the first Alliance joint company to be created and acts as a purchasing organisation for both carmakers.

Quietmeyer joined Renault in 2008 and held a number of positions in outbound management before his most recent inbound-focused role, which he took up in 2014.

Quietmeyer told Automotive Logistics that his motivation for the move was to get exposure to a different "very Alliance" function, after almost nine years in vehicle and parts logistics.

Martin Corner is replacing Quietmeyer as general manager for inbound logistics. He moves from his role at Renault Nissan as general manager of strategy and planning, Alliance Logistics Europe, prior to which he held roles at Nissan in purchasing, supply chain and planning.
