USA: Coda taps ex-GM, Saab executive John Anderson to run aftersales operations

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2012 –CODA Holdings, a leading developer of all-electric vehicles and advanced battery systems, today announced automotive professional John Anderson as its vice president of aftersales and customer quality experience for CODA Automotive.

“With such a rich automotive background, we’re excited to have John Anderson join our executive team,” said Thomas Hausch, SVP of sales, marketing and aftersales, CODA Holdings. “With John’s extensive experience in both large and small OEM aftermarket environments, we’re confident that he will help us fulfill CODA’s commitment to our customers and dealers, and ultimately help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.”

Anderson has more than 30 years of aftersales experience in corporate and retail environments.
