Subaru of America has appointed Bill Cyphers senior vice president of sales. He replaces Tim Colbeck, who left Subaru earlier this week to become president and COO of Saab Cars North America.
Cyphers joined Subaru in 1984 and was most recently vice president of the brand's eastern region. His previous posts included vice president of sales, sales operations, marketing and distributor operations, Subaru said. Cyphers worked for Ford Motor Co. before joining Subaru.
Mike Hafertepe will switch jobs and become vice president of the eastern region to replace Cyphers. He was previously vice president of the central region. Hafertepe joined Subaru more than 10 years ago and previously worked for Nissan.
Subaru said it will fill the job of vice president for the central region soon.
Subaru also named Jeff Walters vice president of field and distributor operations. He previously led field and distributor operations.
