Renault close to finalizing shortlist for new CEO: Senard






PARIS (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault (PA:RENA) is close to finalizing the shortlist of names for the post of chief executive and could complete the shortlist before the end of the year, said Renault chairman Jean-Dominique Senard on Monday.

Senard told reporters on the sidelines of a French carmaker conference that the shortlist would be finished "in a very short space of time".

Renault ousted former chief executive Thierry Bollore in October, with Renault and its Japanese partner Nissan (T:7201) trying to rekindle their relationship after the arrest of the Renault-Nissan alliance's former head Carlos Ghosn.
