HAMBURG (Reuters) - Opel's new Chief Executive Karl-Thomas Neumann will take office on March 1, four months sooner than expected, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters, confirming a magazine report.

German weekly Der Spiegel had earlier said Neumann's former employer Volkswagen was unexpectedly letting the manager out of his contract before it expires on June 30.

"That is correct," the source said on Sunday.

Volkswagen and Opel declined to comment.

Sources had told Reuters in November that Opel may appoint Neumann as CEO this year as parent company General Motors aims to revamp its loss-making European business.
