Shifting Gears At Harley-Davidson
After much fanfare of hiring Plum baby food and Habit founder Neil Grimmer as newly created President of Global Brand Development back in April, the guy is gone effective immediately according to the Milwaukee Business Journal.
"His departure comes after an internal inquiry along with a third-party investigation into concerns that his judgement and conduct as a senior leader did not align with our culture and the values we expect all our employees to demonstrate," a Harley-Davidson spokesperson said via email to the newspaper.
Harley-Davidson president and CEO Matt Levatich told employees about Grimmer's departure in an internal memo acquired by the Milwaukee Business Journal. The memo indicated that Levatich would be assuming Grimmer's responsibilities as president of global brand development in the interim.
"Based upon our internal inquiry along with the findings of this third-party investigation, we determined that Mr. Grimmer leaving Harley-Davidson was the appropriate course of action. Harley-Davidson takes all matters related to workplace conduct and our Valued Behaviors very seriously. All Harley-Davidson employees, regardless of level, are expected to follow our Code of Business Conduct and Valued Behaviors.”
