Ex-Nissan exec Jose Munoz may have bailed on the troubled Japanese firm amid its big Carlos Ghosn scandal, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy since then.
Automotive News reports on Monday that Munoz is working out the contractual details to take up the mantle of Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai.
That would be a massive jump up the corporate ladder.
His new position would also entail him taking over as CEO of Hyundai Motor America.
Not bad for a guy who until January was the Chief Performance Officer at what is arguably the lowest-performance Japanese automaker.
Munoz also headed up both US and Chinese operations for the brand.
