RUESSELSHEIM -- Opel product chief Frank Weber is leaving the General Motors Co. subsidiary to work for an as-yet-unnamed competitor, company sources told Automotive News Europe today.
An Opel spokesman confirmed that Weber had resigned. "We regret that Frank Weber has quit. We thank him for what he has done and wish him the best for the future," the spokesman told ANE.
Weber is the second top-tier engineer with vast knowledge of Opel's future product portfolio to leave the company in less than a year. In October 2010, former Opel Managing Director Hans Demant started work at Volkswagen AG as its senior vice president in charge of international relations.
