Volkswagen hires former CEO of GM's Opel to run group strategy
Thomas Sedran, interim CEO at Opel in 2012-2013 and head of GM's Chevrolet and Cadillac brands in Europe until June this year, will take up his role at VW on Nov. 1, the Wolfsburg-based group said.
VW is grappling with a raft of suspensions amid the diesel emissions scandal, including the top engineers at premium brands Audi and Porsche.
Sedran is the second prominent recruitment at VW in the past two weeks after the embattled carmaker named Daimler (DAIGn.DE: Quote) manager Christine Hohmann-Dennhardt as compliance manager.
