Maserati has undergone repeated change-ups in its senior management over the past couple of years, both in Modena, where the automaker is based, and in New Jersey, seat of its North American headquarters. In it's latest announcement, the company's North American chief executive has been named as commercial director for the parent company as well.
Mark McNabb was appointed CEO of Maserati North America less than a year ago. He joined the company with little over a year's experience at General Motors, running the Cadillac, Saab and Hummer brands, after having held senior positions at Nissan/Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz.

In his new capacity as commercial director for Maserati SpA, McNabb will replace Raffaele Fusilli (who is leaving the company), report to Harald J. Wester and – in typical Fiat-empire executive style – continue holding his parallel role as chief of the North American operation as well. Press release after the jump.

      wait. Wan't he traded to the Redskins last week? So confused.

      Good. Maybe he can make the inside of the GranTurismo look just as good as the outside...on the commercials(sarcasm). But seriously the inside of the GranTurismo is fail compared to the outside.

      Don't count on it...McNabb is one of the biggest stiffs in the auto industry...notice how he keeps bouncing around? It's not because he is well liked or does a good job...

      How could a company that makes cars as beautiful as the GranCabrio hire someone with such absurdly poor taste in fashion? An orange and blue tie? Sweet heaven have mercy.

        I'm with you. I'd rather live in an apartment and drive an Aston Martin. I was underselling the place a bit. I mean it is a very nice house, but you'd expect maybe a 911 or a Corvette - definitely not a GT. $300,000 can buy a heck of a lot of house in Omaha, Nebraska, too!

        Nothing, as long as it isn't hanging from your neck.

        P.S. Last Sunday afternoon, I was back in my hometown for the weekend and some friends asked if I could let their dog out as they would be gone visiting relatives. I stopped by their very unassuming house in a very unassuming neighborhood, let myself in through the garage and leashed their Wheaton Terrier, Guinness for a walk.

        As we exited the front door, I saw the neighbor across the street pull up to his home in an older RX300 (looked to be ~2002). The garage began to open as he idled in the driveway, and as the door slowly creaked upwards out of sight, what do you think was lying in wait in the other stall? A white and blue Ford GT. This, in the garage of a house that cost maybe $250,000 - $300,000. I almost wet my pants. Good day.

        nice. I've always thought I'd rather have a $100k car and a $100k house than a $30k car and a $170k house.

        keep in mind, median house price in Indiana is considerably low. $300,000 can buy a mansion in my area.
