DETROIT — Rory Harvey, Cadillac's next global boss, will continue the plan he plotted out with departing chief Steve Carlisle, but at higher speed.
Harvey, vice president of Cadillac North America sales, service and marketing, has been Carlisle's right-hand man for the past two years. They took their posts at Cadillac within a month of each other in early 2018.
"Now is the opportunity to accelerate," Harvey told Automotive News.
Cadillac boasts the luxury segment's newest lineup as it launches a new vehicle about every six months for three years, starting in 2019. It debuted a redesigned version of the iconic Escalade SUV in February, and the brand will lead General Motors' charge into electric vehicles and the expansion of Super Cruise, GM's driver-assist technology.
