Filed under: Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, Cadillac, GM
Shakeups in the RenCen continue apace. You know how Bob Lutz says that General Motors will be design-driven going forward? It looks as if he wasn't kidding. Later today, GM will formally announce that current North American design head Brian Nesbitt will assume a new and very different role as the general manager of the Cadillac division.
Nesbitt will report directly to Bob Lutz, according to reports published by Automotive News and The New York Times Wednesday evening. Bryan Nesbitt is perhaps best known for his work designing the Chrysler PT Cruiser and later, its crosstown retro rival, the Chevy HHR. Among his other responsibilities in his present design role at GM, Nesbitt recently oversaw the Cadillac CTS Coupe and SportWagon projects. He officially takes the reins at Caddy on August 1. Cadillac's interim general managers, Steve Hill and Steve Shannon, will be reassigned to as-yet-unannounced roles within General Motors according to spokesman Terry Rhadigan, who talked to Automotive News.
