Volvo Cars said its China sales chief, Fu Qiang, has resigned "for personal reasons."
Volvo hasn't disclosed who will replace Fu in China, its largest market.
Fu departs at a time when Volvo is trying to boost volume significantly in China as part of its plans to increase global sales to about 800,000 vehicles midterm from 503,000 in 2015.
Last year, Volvo's China deliveries were virtually flat at 81,588 vehicles. In the first four months, sales rose 7.8 percent to 25,916 vehicles. But in April deliveries dropped 6.7 percent to 6,280 vehicles.
Fu, 50, started his automotive career at state-owned China FAW Group and became Volvo's China sales head in 2012.
He previously served as vice president for sales and marketing at Beijing Benz Automotive Co., a passenger vehicle joint venture between BAIC Motor and Daimler.
Volvo was purchased from Ford Motor in 2010 by China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.
