Harley-Davidson Inc. vice president, chief legal officer and chief compliance officer Paul Jones will leave the company effective Nov. 29, according to an SEC filing last week.

Jones has been with Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) since July 2010. He previously served as the company’s general counsel for five-and-a-half years.

He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and a law degree from Georgetown University, and has an MBA from Northwestern University.

The Denver District Attorney’s charged 13 people with violating the state’s organized crime act authorities raided motorcycle gangs including the Hells Angels.

Jones was awarded the Milwaukee Business Journal’s top corporate counsel award as diversity champion this year.

In the last nine years, he has led a variety of business functions including strategy and business intelligence, sustainability and business development.

“My duties and responsibilities change every day from navigating through a global trade issue to leading a local initiative to revitalize the historic near west side neighborhood where Harley-Davidson has been located since 1903,” he told the Business Journal earlier this year.

Leading the company through challenges in the current business and political environment is an ongoing project he said he is particularly proud of.

“As Paul moves on to his next professional ventures, the company wishes him well with our gratitude and respect for his many contributions during his time with Harley-Davidson,” the SEC filing read. It was signed by Harley’s assistant secretary Paul Krause.

The filing stated that Harley-Davidson is beginning a search for Jones’ replacement. Jones’ announcement comes within weeks of Harley-Davidson removing president of global brand development Neil Grimmer from his position.

  1. Really “the crisis deepens” is your click bait title? C’mon this guy makes a career change and all of a sudden it is a crisis. You people rank right up there with Jalopnik in the realm of real and trust worthy news sources.

  2. Hopefully the next guy will be able to help the company move forward a lot faster than they have been. Yes, the new models are nice, but they took too long to release, and are taking g too long to be delivered to the dealerships. This is a prime example of a great company relying on their laurels and past accomplishments. I have always been a fan of HD, but want more out of them now and in the future.

    Now, as stated before, I would not necessarily call this a crisis, unless you think of it as a crisis for HD not having a person that is going to be filling all of those positions, and now having to find several people to do the many things this guy has been doing.
    But maybe that is one of the problems, having their people spread too thin and not being able to concentrate on a few issues and items. If you have more professionals carrying out one or two tasks at a time, you tend to get better results when compared to one or two people carrying all of the load.
