Mark McNabb, a former Nissan North America sales executive, has been hired by Mercedes-Benz USA LLC to be vice president of marketing.
McNabb, 44, begins his new job in Montvale, N.J., today, Feb. 27. He will be in charge of marketing and product management for the Mercedes and Maybach brands in the United States.
He fills a post vacated last August when Michelle Cervantez quit to become vice president of marketing for Hyundai Motor America. McNabb reports to Paul Halata, CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA.
McNabb resigned from Nissan last November, soon after getting a new assignment in Japan to run the automaker's overseas sales and marketing. During a 19-year career at Nissan, McNabb had turns as head of the Nissan and Infiniti divisions in the United States.
