Harley-Davidson firing 700 workers globally, CFO departs

American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has announced an overhaul of its global operating model, which includes firing around 700 employees. Of these, approximately 500 workers will be leaving this year, said the company, which has seen its sales drop in recent years in the US.

Harley-Davidson Inc said on Thursday its Chief Financial Officer John Olin will leave his job, from this point forward.

Darrell Thomas, treasurer of the organization, will become break CFO, Harley said.

The U.S. motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson Inc. will eliminate 700 positions – around 12 percent of its worldwide workforce – as its new CEO attempts to contract the cruiser producer into a nimbler and increasingly gainful organization.
