Malcolm Bricklin 'Chery' picks ex-AIADA president for Visionary Vehicles
Automotive mogul Malcolm Bricklin announced Wednesday that he has signed Marianne McInerney, former President of the American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) to be his Executive Vice President of Dealer/Industry Relations at Visionary Vehicles. The CEO is best known for his instrumental role in bringing Subaru and Yugo to North America, as well as for his ill-fated 'safety supercar,' the eponymous Bricklin SV-1.
Visionary Vehicles, you'll recall, is Bricklin's bid to bring Chinese vehicles to the North American marketplace. The high-profile entrepreneur has signed a joint venture with Chery Vehicles, and in the words of the company, this is the group's "first critical hire."
