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

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.

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.

Evidently, they were a sponsor of the Saab Owners Convention back when it took place in Vero Beach back in 2001.

I placed a phonecall into their dealership and the receptionist did confirm this, however a transfer to their general sales manager for more details did not yield any further details.

As of this posting, this brings the total Saab dealerships in the United States down to 226, and the exclusives to 77.
