O'Hagan leaves Ford

Fran O'Hagan, the recently appointed vice president of franchise operations for the combined Aston Martin Jaguar Land Rover organization, has left Ford Motor Co.'s Premier Automotive Group to join Indian Motorcycle Co.

O'Hagan is senior vice president in charge of product management and marketing for the Gilroy, Calif. company.

"I've always been crazy about motorcycles, but before now, I never thought I would work in the industry," O'Hagan, 37, said Thursday, Sept. 6, less than a month after his previous appointment was announced. Aston Martin Jaguar Land Rover spokesman Simon Sproule said O'Hagan's successor will be named soon.

O'Hagan was West Coast regional manager of sales and marketing operations for BMW of North America Inc. before joining Jaguar North America last year as vice president of retail operations.
