Just days before the reveal of its first vehicle, Volvo's Charleston Plant has seen a change at the top. Jeff Moore will take over as Vice President, Manufacturing, Americas as well as plant manager for Volvo's shiny new South Carolina assembly plant.

The plant is the stage for the worldwide reveal of the brand new S60, which will be made exclusively there.

The plant is Volvo's first in North America and has been operated by Katarina Fjording until now. Although the automaker's press release indicates that she will transition out of her role and into something new, it provides no information as to what that position will, saying instead that "her new position will be announced at a later date."

Moore, meanwhile, brings 33 years of experience to his new role. Until recently, he served as senior VP at Toyota Motor North America where he ran five plants and led powertrain manufacturing and engineering.

"Jeff has an accomplished career and is a hands-on leader who is passionate about operational excellence and continuous improvement," said Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President, Americas and President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. "We are thrilled to welcome him to the Volvo Car family as we prepare to officially open the Volvo Car Charleston Plant."
