Newly appointed Vauxhall design chief Dave Lyon has quit, just days before starting his new role, it has been reported.
Lyon, who was set to take the reigns from current design boss Mark Adams, stepped down as design chief last Thursday. It remains unclear why he made the decision.
Adams, who now heads GM as global director for Cadillac and Buick, will remain as Opel/Vauxhall’s design boss until a replacement is found.
The news follows the firm’s recent troubles when Karl-Friedrich Stracke relinquished his role as Opel CEO.
