Chrysler Group's senior vice president of global brand marketing for the past six years is leaving the company.
George Murphy, 51, will leave at the end of this month in order to pursue other opportunities, Chrysler Group announced today. A replacement was not named immediately.
"George has made a key contribution to our efforts to retool our brands -- Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge," said Steven Landry, executive vice president of North American sales, marketing, service and parts.
Murphy developed the new advertising campaign for the Chrysler brand that debuted May 8, called "Engineered Beautifully."
He joined Chrysler Group in February 2001 after two years with Ford Motor Co., where he was general marketing manager for the Ford Division. Before joining Ford, Murphy was with General Electric for 11 years, rising to the level of corporate vice president.
