Cadillac chief Rory Harvey will become General Motors' new president of North America at the end of the month as Steve Carlisle retires after a 41-year career with the automaker.
Carlisle, 61, has run GM's largest and most profitable region since September 2020. He will be succeeded June 1 by Harvey, who has led Cadillac over that same period, GM said Tuesday.
GM promoted two other executives. John Roth will take over Harvey's role as vice president of global Cadillac, while Josh Tavel, executive chief engineer of battery electric trucks and SUVs since 2019, will succeed Roth as global vice president of Customer Care and Aftersales. Those changes also are effective June 1.
"I'd like to thank Steve for his tremendous leadership, collaboration across the company and dedicated years of service to GM," GM President Mark Reuss said in a statement. "Along with Rory, Steve has played a significant role in the transformation of the Cadillac brand over the last several years and under his leadership our North American business is strong and well-positioned for future growth.
