Fritz Henderson, the CEO of General Motors yesterday made the announcement of Mark LaNeve's departure of the builder's US sales vice president. The vice president leaves starting om 15th of October, moving to an unnamed firm, a non-automotive one.
Henderson stated for the press, announcing the departure: 'It's with very mixed emotions I confirm that Mark LaNeve has elected to leave General Motors on October 15 to pursue another opportunity with a non-automotive company. Mark has contributed significantly to GM in several key positions, including transforming the Cadillac brand and leading the vehicle sales, service and marketing organization during one of the most challenging periods in GM's history'.
'I'd like to thank Mark for his dedication and wish him and his family well as he moves to a key position at another company. A replacement for Mark will be named at a later date. In the interim, Jim Bunnell, general manager, U.S. sales, and his team will continue to follow through with GM's dealer network plans'.
Henderson found Jim Bunnell's replacement very fast. The sales in North America will be taken care by Susan Docherty, now Buick-GMC's general manager. After LaNeve leaves, she will be in that office.
'I'd be very nervous about putting someone into the sales function who didn't understand how it worked at the time we're going through a dealer restructuring like we're doing' Henderson said, quoted by Autonews, he added that Docherty is quite capable filling the post.
