GM’s Premium Channel VP, Mark McNabb, Resigns From General Motors After Only 13 Months

Posted on 22. May, 2009 by in 2000-2009

GM’s Premium Channel VP, Mark McNabb, the one that has been writing all of the letters recently to Saab Automobile dealers, has just resigned after 13 months.

It’s interesting, because he has resigned just before June 1st, when GM needs to prove that they are restructuring properly so that they aren’t forced into bankruptcy. I am guessing that he’s leaving with his golden parachute before GM goes belly up on June 1st.

Here’s the piece from the Detroit News.

This leaves just Steve Shannon, as the only one spending some of his day with Saab in the United States. That’s effectively all that Saab USA is today, but that’s under the old GM regime, which I hope will be changed with the new Saab just around the corner.

Detroit — Mark McNabb, vice president of General Motors Corp.’s premium Cadillac, Hummer and Saab brands, has resigned after 13 months with the automaker, the company said Thursday.

He will be replaced on an interim basis by Stephen J. Hill, general sales manager for GM’s premium channel.

Prior to joining GM, McNabb was a senior vice president for sales and marketing at Nissan North America.


Earlier this month, GM warned there would be cuts among the ranks of salaried employees and executives, but a company spokesman said it was McNabb’s decision to leave.

“He elected to pursue other career opportunities,” Cadillac spokesman Klaus-Peter Martin said Thursday. “A big part had to do with he wanted to be closer to his family,” in New Jersey.

    After just 13 months, I would hope his parachute is pretty small!

    He didn’t seem to do much for SAAB. I rarely saw his name out in the press. I wonder if he shared the same hiding spot as Dick Cheney?
