Changan design chief quits, newspaper reports

Ken Ma, a Western-trained car designer, has quit his job as design chief of Chongqing Changan Automobile Co., The Wall Street Journal reported.

Ma, initially with General Motors, was recruited by state-owned Changan in 2010. He helped Changan set up its design center in Beijing.

Changan wooed Ma away from another Chinese automaker, SAIC Motor Corp., where he helped design the Roewe and MG vehicles.

Changan, with sales of more than 1.9 million units last year, is China's fourth largest domestic automaker. The company maintains joint ventures with Ford Motor Co., Mazda Motor Corp., Suzuki and PSA Peugeot Citroen.

The company is China's second largest producer of light commercial vehicles, with sales of 646,908 units in 2011, according to LMC Automotive.
