DETROIT, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Dan Ammann, the incoming
president of General Motors Co, said on Monday the
automaker expects the U.S. market to continue to grow modestly
“We see modest continued growth in the industry here in the
U.S., in line with general expectations,” Ammann said at the
North American International Auto Show in Detroit. He is
currently the chief financial officer of GM.
DETROIT (Reuters) – General Motors named a new chief executive, Ford kept its old leader and Chrysler’s CEO averted a divisive public offering. And that was just in the last 30 days.
This year is shaping up as a test of leadership at GM (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research), Ford (F.N: Quote, Profile, Research) and Chrysler, five years after the U.S. auto industry’s searing restructuring. While the risks ahead are no longer life-threatening, how the companies respond will set their direction for years to come and signal whether the lessons of the financial crisis were embedded deeply enough.
