CODA Automotive Loses Sales VP

Santa Monica-based CODA Automotive, the maker of electric cars, said late Tuesday evening that its Vice President of Global Sales, Marketing and Distribution, Michael A. Jackson, has resigned. Reason for the departure was not given. CODA said that the firm will transition Jackson's responsibilities to existing team members, and is now looking to find a replacement. Jackson had only been at CODA since January of this year, having joined the company from Sarkissian Mason. Jackson had previously been General Motors VP of Marketing and Advertising.
