GM shuffles sales leaders for 2nd time in 3 months



General Motors Co. says it will restructure its sales and marketing operations for the second time in less than three months.

The Detroit automaker will split sales from marketing after combining them under Susan Docherty in December. Southeast Asia Executive Director Steve Carlisle will now head sales while Docherty leads marketing.

The company also split up sales and marketing for its remaining brands, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac and reassigned other executives.

CEO Ed Whitacre Jr. has said that new executives will have little time to show results.
