General Motors has shaken up a few of its executive positions, specifically in Thailand. Marco Purty will move from managing director of Chevrolet Thailand to a new leadership position at the Lansing Delta Township assembly in the United States.
Assuming the role of managing director for Chevrolet Thailand will be Wail A. Farghaly, who is current managing director of Chevrolet Vietnam.
“Wail is an experienced industry professional with great knowledge of the business, particularly the sales side,” said Stefan Jacoby, GM executive vice president and president, GM International. “Wail will drive the growth of our operations in Thailand through the launch of exciting new products, including the All-New Chevrolet Colorado unveiled in Bangkok a few days ago.”
Purty will repatriate to the United States after leading Chevrolet operations in Thailand for over two years, where he led a role in introducing new pickups and SUVs for the region.
Farghaly has held roles throughout GM since joining the automaker in 1999 through marketing, sales and operations.
Both positions will take effect July 1, 2016.
