Polestar, the electric performance brand owned by Volvo and its Chinese parent Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, has hired auto sales veteran Feng Dan from General Motors’ joint venture with China's SAIC Motor.
Feng, previously sales director of Cadillac at SAIC-GM, will take over from Nathan Forshaw as Polestar's China president on August 15, the automaker said.
Feng has more than 25 years of experience in the auto industry. During his eight-year tenure at SAIC-GM, Cadillac’s China sales grew steadily, topping 230,000 in 2021.
“Mr. Feng Dan has profound insights into the automotive industry and successful experience in brand growth. He will lead Polestar China into a new stage of development," Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a statement.
