Chery Automobile begins executive recruitment for Jaguar joint venture

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 9, 2012

China's Chery Automobile has begun the recruitment of executives for its upcoming joint venture with Jaguar Land Rover, the 21st Century Business Herald newspaper reported. The Chinese government has yet to approve the partnership. According to the paper, two veteran vehicle company managers joined the recruitment last week.

One of them is Hu Jun, who is the former sales boss of SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile Co., which is a microvan company established by the joint venture of General Motors, SAIC Motor Corp. and the government of Liuzhou. The second executive is Huang Huaqiong, who is a former vice president of Beiqi Foton Motor Co., the biggest light truck manufacturer in China. He is a veteran marketing manager.

He has previously worked for Shanghai General Motors, SAIC Motor Corp. and Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile Co. India's Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover and Chery aspire to create a 17.5 billion yuan ($2.8 billion) joint venture in Changshu in eastern China's Jiangsu province, according to Reuters. This new partnership will first manufacture Land Rover SUVs. It will then develop Jaguars in its second stage.
