The European General Motors, more commonly known as Opel/Vauxhall, will be getting a new boss while other members of management are moved around. With the former President and CEO, Karl-Friedrich Stracke, stepping down “to take on special assignments reporting to GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson”, the chief position was left open. Now serving as Interim Head of GM European Operations is Steve Girsky, Chairman of the Opel Supervisory Board. This switch up will hold strong until a full-time replacement for Stracke is found.
“I am leaving my current position knowing that Opel/Vauxhall has a bright future,” Stracke said. “And I am looking forward to taking on new challenges for GM and Dan Akerson.” Heavily responsible for Opel/Vauxhall’s success during an economic turn down, Stracke helped the auto brand gain profits while others were loosing money. “Karl Stracke worked tirelessly, under great pressure, to stabilize this business and we look forward to building on his success. We appreciate Karl’s many contributions to GM’s success,” said Dan Akerson.
