The new General Motors (GM) Company began its operations with a new corporate structure. GM India will be the part of the new company.
For improving customer’s focus and speed, GM will end its regional operating structure, which eliminates the regional president’s positions and the regional strategy boards.
Sources said Nick Reilly, GM Group VP and president, GM Asia Pacific, will be named executive VP of GM International Operations, which will be based in Shanghai, China.
Karl Slym, president & MD, GM India said, “We have no intention to modify our product, brand or other business plans including new product launches, the all new Chevrolet Cruze from our mother plant in Halol and an all new Chevrolet mini car from our new state of the art plant at Talegaon,” said Slym.
In its 14 years of established operations in this country, GM India has invested over Rs.5000 crore to create a manufacturing capacity of 225,000 vehicles per annum. Over 4000 people are directly employed by GM India at the manufacturing plants in Halol and Talegaon, the Engineering, R&D and Design Centre in Bangalore and its corporate office in Gurgaon.
