Laura Schwab, president of Aston Martin's Americas business, the British ultraluxury brand's largest region by sales volume, is leaving the company.
Schwab, 47, had been in her post for a little over five years, having started in October 2015. She was the first woman to hold that title at Aston Martin.
Before Aston Martin, Schwab worked at Land Rover for 14 years.
Schwab has elected to leave her post to pursue other opportunities, effective Friday, Nov. 13, Aston Martin said in an emailed statement.
Until a permanent successor is named, Ed Moran, head of sales for the Americas, will assume the role of interim president for the Americas, reporting to the automaker's global sales chief, Jon Pollock, the statement said.
Schwab's departure occurs in what has been a tumultuous year for Aston Martin, which has struggled financially since going public in 2018.
In June, the automaker said it would cut up to 500 jobs, or about 20 percent of the company's work force, as it grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic.
