Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe – is leaving her posts at General Motors to spend time with her family, effective September 30, 2013. GM said it will appoint a successor to Docherty at a later date. Tim Lee, GM Vice President, Global Manufacturing, and President, International Operations, remarked that throughout Docherty’s over 27 years of service in GM, she has been instrumental in many of the carmaker’s sales and marketing initiatives.

He remarked that Docherty played a vital role in building the equity of GM’s brands and reach customers in “new and innovative ways.”

In her present role which was disclosed in December 2011, Docherty started the restructuring of Chevrolet and Cadillac’s operations in Europe. GM said she was responsible for growing Chevrolet market share in 2012 in Europe.

The carmaker said that Docherty has been “a guiding force” in helping GM to re-define the positioning of the Chevrolet brand in GM International Operations. Docherty remarked that after almost three decades working at GM, she decided to “take a break, invest time in [her] family and chart a new course for [her] career.

Prior to being president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, Docherty held a number of leading positions in sales, marketing, and communications around the world. [source: freep]
