LOS ANGELES -- Pierre Gagnon, former CEO of Mitsubishi Motors North America, has been promoted to CEO of Rhino Linings USA Inc.
Rhino Linings, with headquarters in San Diego, specializes in sprayed-on linings for truck beds and other surfaces. Gagnon, 50, joined Rhino in January as general manager and president.
In March 2005, Gagnon was named COO of Visionary Vehicles LLC, the company started by Malcolm Bricklin to import vehicles built by China's Chery Automobile Co. to the United States. But he abruptly left in June 2005 because of a disagreement with Bricklin.
Gagnon joined Mitsubishi as COO in 1997 and was promoted to CEO in 2002. He resigned from Mitsubishi in August 2003.
