Recommended Posts

Filed under: Europe, Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GM, GMC, Design/Stylegm-logo-1340042915.jpgGeneral Motors has given its global design team a good shake in an attempt to create "a more brand-focused design organization."

Current vice president of GM Europe design, Mark Adams, will move to Warren, Michigan to take over duties as the executive director of Global Cadillac and Buick design.

No you can keep the bacon. I prefer your main exports: snow and maple syrup.

I'll take the beer and bacon but, that fries with gravy crap, you can have that. Haha

In serious mode now, I think this is a good thing for GM, it should bring the designs from different countries and mix it up. Too bad they didn't bring the Holden design guy up here to the states... :/
