Harley-Davidson general manager Ed Magee resigns

By ,

After a decade leading Harley-Davidson in York, Ed Magee has resigned as general manager of the motorcycle maker's Springettsbury Township plant.

Feb. 14 will be Magee’s last day with Harley-Davidson.

“We will announce his replacement when the decision is made,” Bernadette Lauer, spokeswoman for the company’s York Vehicle Operations, said in an emailed statement.

Magee joined Harley-Davidson in May 2004 after the plant workforce was cut in half, to about 1,000 workers. He spent a little over four years as general manager, previously serving in other management roles.

According to Magee’s LinkedIn page, he served 15 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, retiring as a lieutenant colonel. He also earned master’s degrees in public administration and business administration from George Mason and Duke, respectively.

Magee held several positions at Harley-Davidson, Lauer said, helping lead “the site’s transformation efforts.”

Established as an assembly facility in 1973, Harley-Davidson’s York Vehicle Operations makes more than 60 percent of the company’s motorcycles. The York facility covers more than 171 acres and has more than 600,000 square feet.
