Volvo, one of the few automakers to buck the market slide in China, has appointed a new sales head for the world's No. 1 market.
Qin Peiji will take over from Chen Lizhe as president of the brand's sales company for Greater China, the company said.
Qin, an auto sales veteran with more than 20 years' experience, joined the sales company in 2011.
Chen will become head of Volvo's Taiwan subsidiary after serving as the Swedish marque's greater China sales chief since 2016.
Both appointments will take effect on July 1, according to Volvo. Greater China comprises mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
In the first five months, Volvo bucked the downturn in mainland China's new-vehicle market -- its largest single market worldwide -- with local sales rising 9.5 percent to 54,503.
