Thomas SedranThomas Sedran, former interim head of Opel and General Motors’ European chief for Cadillac and Chevrolet brands, will join embattled automaker Volkswagen as head of group strategy, according to the automaker.

Sedran was head of Opel in 2012 when that automaker shuttered a plant in Bochum, Germany. Sedran was president and managing director of Cadillac and Chevrolet brands in Europe until June, when he joined global consulting firm Accenture.

According to Volkswagen, Sedran will take over Nov. 1 and report directly to new CEO Matthias Müller.

Sedran, 51, was a management consultant for 18 years before joining Opel in 2012. Sedran helped initiate Drive!2022 at Opel, which is that automaker’s plan to gain market share and become more profitable over the next seven years.

Part of Sedran’s plan at Opel included significant cost-cutting measures along with shuttering the plant in Bochum.
