Cadillac chief Mark McNabb resigns after 13 months at GM

Mark McNabb, who was hired by GM 13 months ago to lead Cadillac, Saab and Hummer and ended up trying to sell two of the brands, has resigned. McNabb, 48, will leave on June 1 to pursue other job opportunities, Cadillac spokesman Klaus-Peter Martin said. In the interim, Stephen J. Hill will serve as Cadillac's chief.</I></B>

Yet another change in GM senior management. I wonder how this will affect future Cadillac plans, or the model line-up in the near term, if at all.

Getting while the getting's still good? Heinricy got out literally minutes ahead of the fecal matter impacting the rotary impeller.

In the grand scheme, probably very little. Remember that Cadillac (and GMC, and Chevrolet, etc) are little more than marketing brands within GM. GM will still design and build the vehicles. Cadillac will still sell them.

Yeah, in the scheme of things, this one man isn't a big deal (unlike Lutz or Heinricy). In the larger climate of all that's going on, you have to wonder if they'll lose focus on the next round of replacements for the current lineup.

Put aside that they've lost some of their best champions for great product. Money for the next round has been redirected or delayed. They'll certainly be fewer models in the lineup, and there will be emphasis on fuel efficient cars.

It feels like all this news fits together as links in a chain, that we're facing the end of a pretty good run for gearheads.
Smoke 'em if you've got 'em.

There's one minor difference with Cadillac; they have their own dedicated design group, studio... Until the last couple or few years, they shared design resources with the other brands.
