Exactly how operations at 斯巴鲁 加拿大 will change — if at all —进行行政变更后 企业链更高 有待确定。
斯巴鲁 Corp. named 北美 Chairman and CEO Tomomi 中村 在几项管理层变动之一中宣布其新任全球总裁 Friday in Tokyo.
斯巴鲁 of America President Tom Doll, the longtime face of the band and architect behind an ongoing run of soaring U.S. sales, was named CEO. But 斯巴鲁 加拿大 CEO Yasushi 江南 will not report to him,spokesman Mike McHale said.
分别， Subaru of 加拿大 发言人丹·伊利卡（Dan 伊利卡）在给《汽车新闻》的电子邮件中说 Canada: “While reporting is still being decided for Mr. 江南, 斯巴鲁 加拿大, Inc. will continue to report to the Corporate Executive Vice President, Chief General Manager, 斯巴鲁 Overseas Sales & Marketing Div. 1, at 斯巴鲁 Corporation.”
The promotion makes Doll the first American to hold that position since parent Fuji Heavy Industries, now known as 斯巴鲁, acquired full ownership of its U.S. arm in 1990.
伊利卡 said the changes shouldn’t affect day-to-day operations because the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of 斯巴鲁 Corp. and “相当独立。”
江南 replaced Shiro Ohta in April 2017. 斯巴鲁 加拿大 presidents and CEOs typically spend about five to seven years in 加拿大 before transferring, Ilika 说过。 Ohta开始任职加拿大’2010年的最高执行官。
The 斯巴鲁 of America chair will remain vacant. Jinya Shoji, currently corporate vice president for global marketing, will be dispatched to work under Doll as a local executive vice president, 中村 说过。
Doll has seen considerable change in his own role at 斯巴鲁 during his career, holding positions from manager of treasury operations to CFO to COO.
But today, with a crossover-heavy lineup and relatively low incentives, 斯巴鲁 remains one of the strongest performing automakers in the U.S., despite a cooling market.
目前，它的销售额同比增长了75个月。 二月里， 斯巴鲁's U.S. sales 增长了3.8％，达到47,249辆。
斯巴鲁 forecasts that the U.S. company deliver 5 per cent sales growth in 2018, which equate to 680,000 sales.
Its manufacturing plant in Indiana is set to begin production of the three-row Ascent crossover in May, placing 斯巴鲁 back into a competitive segment it has had to live without for several years.
斯巴鲁 of America celebrated its 50th anniversary last month. It is set to move its headquarters from Cherry Hill, N.J. to nearby Camden this spring.
