LOS ANGELES -- Dave Schembri, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc., and Wayne Killen, vice president of marketing, resigned Friday, Feb. 17.
Schembri joined the company last February from Mercedes-Benz. Schembri recruited Killen, also from Mercedes, last August.
The company says the sales and marketing operations will be handled by Hiroshi Harunari, who was named co-CEO of the U.S. unit in January. Harunari also is head of Mitsubishi's overseas operations.
Ted Terp, chairman of the Mitsubishi dealer council, says, "I think we're in good hands. I think they have qualified people in place, and the dealers have 100 percent support of the people who remain there."
He owns Metro Mitsubishi in Minneapolis.
