DALLAS -- Toyota North America is shuffling two high-profile executive jobs by having its vice president of sales and dealership development at the Toyota division swap roles with his Lexus counterpart.
David Christ will move into the sales job at Lexus, while Andrew Gilleland shifts over to Toyota. "This move is the latest in a series that will further align our corporate objectives," Toyota said in a statement, while "providing both individuals further job growth."
Christ will report to Jeff Bracken, general manager for Lexus, and Gilleland will report to Jack Hollis, general manager for Toyota.
In his previous sales role at Toyota, Christ was responsible for the brand's 10 regional offices and two private distributors, the company said. Prior to that, he was vice president of sales at Toyota Financial Services.
Gilleland had joined Lexus in February of last year after working as vice president of the youth-oriented Scion division, which was phased out beginning in 2016.
