General Motors has announced a new CEO for Hummer as the brand experiences one of the most tumultuous periods in its history. Moving into the CEO position is former Cadillac general manager Jim Taylor, whose appointment comes just weeks after GM confirmed a sale of the SUV brand.

The move is part of GM’s ongoing business and strategic review of Hummer, and some of Taylor’s key duties will be to help the transition of the business to its new owner and settle ongoing dealer relations. Hummer dealers across the U.S. are currently negotiating to sell their stores while GM attempts to avoid lawsuits or similar actions from some owner-dealers that have invested millions of dollars in their businesses.

GM is also reportedly in talks with a number of different firms, including parties from India, China and Russia, over the sale of the brand. However, GM is yet to reveal any of the names of the companies it's talking to.

Mark McNabb will stay on as vice president in charge of Cadillac and GM’s premium sales channel. At the same time, the three general manager positions at Cadillac, Hummer and Saab have been eliminated as part of GM’s ongoing restructuring.
