Dave Gibbons, plant manager at General Motors’ Shreveport Assembly Plant, has been appointed executive director of vehicle assembly operations in GM’s Asia Pacific region effective Aug. 1 where he will assume manufacturing responsibilities for GM’s Holden Operations. He will report to Bob Moran, vice president of manufacturing for GM Asia Pacific, and Mark Reuss, chairman and managing director of GM Holden Ltd.

As plant manager in Shreveport, Gibbons was responsible for overseeing the production of the Chevy S-10, GMC Sonoma, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon and HUMMER H3. Gibbons lead the 2003 start-up of GM’s new state-of-the-art assembly complex and most recently played a key role in securing almost $80 million for the production of the Hummer H3T pick-up.

In January 2008, Gibbons was recognized as Shreveport Business Leader of the Year.

In his new job, Gibbons will oversee the manufacturing of vehicles produced at GM Holden, including the Commodore, Statesman and Pontiac G8, which is exported to the United States.

This will not be his first foray overseas. Prior to his assignment in Shreveport, Gibbons was president of Opel Eisenach, Germany, as part of General Motors Europe.

If anybody has this guy’s e-mail address, he could be a great tipster for breaking Pontiac G8 news

Is this the guy?

I dont like these American postings in Holden/ American influences of Holden. Holden and Asia needs to bring in someone local, one who knows how things are done and also are more passionate about the local products.

The last few Americans who've cycled through GM Asia/Pacific have presided over some of the better performances in the GM empire.

Not too mention that numerous Holden guys have been elevated throughout GM outside of Australia... I'd say for the role Holden is playing in GM today, its importance and value have been noted. China and Korea are getting plenty of love and attention too.

It's the region where GM has been doing little wrong. The only thing I'd wish for GM in Oz is to speed up Cadillac's introduction, Hummer's rollout, and the introduction of Chevy to bolster the bottom/value range to relieve Holden of the burden of breadth. Similar to Opel's ascendance in Europe.
