DETROIT -- General Motors' Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing division is undergoing a management shuffle as a longtime executive, Pete Gerosa, prepares to retire.
GM said Wednesday that Brent Dewar, 50, will replace Gerosa, 64, as vice president of field sales, service and parts effective March 1. Dewar now is vice president of marketing and advertising.
Mike Jackson, 49, will move from his job as GM's Western regional general manager in Los Angeles to replace Dewar as vice president of marketing and advertising.
Gerosa, who's been with GM for 42 years, will receive a new assignment until his retirement this year. His new assignment will focus on starting sales and service programs and distribution strategies, which are "integral to GM's North American turnaround plan," the company said in a statement.
Gerosa will continue to report to Mark LaNeve, GM's vice president of vehicle sales, service and marketing.
Susan Docherty, 43, will replace Jackson as Western regional general manager. She has been general manager of Hummer. Martin Walsh, 53, executive director of sales and marketing support, will replace Docherty.
"These changes will strengthen the VSSM team and help us further develop bench strength for the future," LaNeve said in a statement.
