Previous AT&T chief executive officer (CEO) Ed Whitacre is officially General Motor‘s (GM’s) current and hopefully permanent CEO. Whitacre served as GM’s pro tem CEO — after GM’s board of directors fired Fritz Henderson about 2 months ago on December 1, 2009.
Mr. Whitacre comes from a heavy manufacturing experience. He is known by his former colleagues to lead with a “heavy hand.”
I hope this announcement will equate to the production of less faulty and defective lemon General Motor vehicles. Whitacre will be GM’s fourth hired CEO in less than twelve months.
