PSA Group's Citroen brand plans to reshuffle its leadership, with Mitsubishi's former head of production, Vincent Cobee, replacing the brand's current boss Linda Jackson, company sources said.
Jackson will be given a new role at PSA, the sources told Automobilwoche, a sister publication of Automotive News Europe.
Cobee left Mitsubishi in April as part of a wider shuffle among the top ranks at Nissan and Mitsubishi in the wake of the arrest of Carlos Ghosn last November.
The French national had previously worked at Nissan, where he was in charge of global business for Datsun, Nissan’s rebooted emerging market brand.
A PSA spokesman said only that Cobee had joined the Citroen management team as of Oct. 1 as deputy to the brand manager, with responsibility for accelerating the brand's international growth.
"He will be part of the Citroen executive committee," the spokesman told Automotive News Europe.
