DAN Dana CEO to leave post, was on job for 6 months: Change at top job is 3rd in 9 months

A great Lean leader, Gary Convis, has been replaced as CEO at an auto parts supplier, Dana. He will be vice-chair, however, and will “focus on developing customer relations and manufacturing quality.”

Dana has struggled since leaving Chapter 11. Sales rose slightly to $2.3 billion in the second quarter. But the firm recorded a loss of $140 million following a loss of $133 million in the second quarter of 2007. Results for the third quarter are scheduled to be announced Thursday.
