“We’re delighted to have James on board to lead the next phase of our
development in North America,” said John Zhang, founder and President of
SERES. “James brings many years of experience leading global automotive
brands such as Cadillac, Hummer and Karma. He’s exactly the person we’ve
wanted to bring our U.S. factory online and launch vehicles and
technologies in the North American market.”
Prior to joining SERES, James held executive leadership positions at two
of General Motors’ most recognizable brands, Cadillac and Hummer. He
served as President, General Manager and Chief Marketing Officer of
Cadillac before becoming CEO of Hummer, which manufactured its vehicles
at the very same Mishawaka facility that SERES acquired in 2017 to
manufacture electric vehicles. After leaving GM, James held senior roles
in the EV industry, serving as CEO of Workhorse Group, and later Chief
Sales and Marketing Officer at Karma Automotive.
“I am deeply impressed by the technology the company has developed in
their Silicon Valley facility, including motors, batteries and control
systems, and believe that SERES can leverage this technology not only
for its own portfolio of EVs, but also to support other OEMs,” said
James Taylor, CEO of SERES Automotive.
