Cadillac’s Nesbitt shown the door

Rumors are flying this morning of a management shake-up at GM (again).

After today’s sales call – scheduled for 10a EST – GM is expected to announce several changes in its management structure. Included in this is rumored to be the removal of Bryan Nesbitt as head of Cadillac.

This would possibly signal a weakening of the influence of Vice-Chairman Bob Lutz (who helped champion Nesbitt who worked for him at Chrysler in the late 90’s).

This, the cancellation of the Converj extended range EV, and the showing of a Epsilon II based ‘flagship’ car calls into question the commitment of new GM management to making Cadillac a true leader of the luxury segment vs. a style-driven profit-center.

Stay tuned.
