DETROIT — Lear Corp., moving quickly to consolidate its $2.3 billion acquisition of UT Automotive, has triggered an exodus of the unit's top talent.
UTA President C. Scott Greer and most of his senior executives and support staff are gone — more than 200 employees total, said recruiter Kathleen Sinclair.
``They lost some really, really good people, but they're being snapped up quickly in the market,'' said Sinclair, chief executive officer of Executive Recruiters International Inc. in Detroit.
Hartford, Conn.-based United Technologies Corp. — UT Automotive's former parent — declined comment.
A Lear spokeswoman declined to indicate whether the UTA executives were fired or departed voluntarily.
