GM VP to retire
General Motors on Wednesday announced Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Chuck Stevens will retire in March after more than 40 years with the company.
Dhivya Suryadevara will take over as CFO effective Sept. 1, GM said. Stevens will stay on as an adviser until he retires.
“Dhivya’s experience and leadership in several key roles throughout our financial operations positions her well to build on the strong business results we’ve delivered over the last several years,” said Mary Barra, GM chairwoman and CEO.
Suryadevara, 39, has been vice president of corporate finance since July 2017 and has worked for GM since 2005, according to a news release.
Auto workers union picks Gary Jones as new president
Members of the United Auto Workers union have elected regional director Gary Jones as the organization’s new president.
Jones was picked in a roll-call vote Wednesday at the union’s 2018 constitutional convention in Detroit.
He’ll take over a 400,000-member union that’s facing a federal investigation in a corruption scandal involving a worker training center run jointly by Fiat Chrysler and the union. The UAW also has had trouble organizing at factories in the South run by foreign-based automakers.
But its finances have stabilized under President Dennis Williams, who is retiring.
