From Down Under to top dog Simcoe gets top GM design job
Aussie designer Mike Simcoe to head General Motors design globally
Mr Monaro, Mike Simcoe, has been appointed the head of General Motors design globally.
Only the seventh person to hold the position in the company’s 108-year history, Simcoe is also the first non-American. The Aussie replaces Ed Welburn, who today announced his retirement.
Simcoe is a 33-year veteran of GM Design and currently holds the position of Vice President of GM International Design. He will start transitioning into his new role from May 1.
Simcoe will relocate to Detroit and his successor at GM International — which takes in production and advanced studios in Korea, Australia and India — will be announced in due course. Current Holden Design boss Richard Ferlazzo is widely tipped for the role.
