Mr Lutz had made public his intention to retire earlier this year, but later decided to remain at GM once he was placed in charge of marketing in July.
Also involved in the shakeup is Mark Reuss, who served briefly as vice president of engineering earlier this year after leading Holden in 2008. Mr Reuss has now been named president of North America for General Motors.
In addition to the role changes for Mr Lutz and Mr Reuss, Susan Docherty, GM’s sales chief, has now taken over marketing and will also lead the service and parts organisation.
