Harley-Davidson, Inc. has selected Michael Fisher as the new general manager for its York Vehicle Operations.

He succeeds Ed Magee, whose resignation was announced Friday.

Magee's last day will be Friday, Feb. 14, and Fisher will start his new role with the Milwaukee-based manufacturer on Monday, Feb. 17.

"Most recently, Fisher was the director of manufacturing systems and was responsible for leading the implementation of the Continuous Improvement System across all Harley-Davidson manufacturing operations," said spokeswoman Bernadette Lauer.

The Continuous Improvement System is a production model that allows workers in each area of an assembly line to track the progress of the bikes, while also coming up with ideas to improve productivity and safety. It also helps employees on both shifts complete work in a uniform manner.

Fisher joined Harley in 1994 as a production employee and worked his way into several leadership roles in multiple facilities, including director of operations in York.
