GM to kick off 2024 with new executive appointments

On January 2, three General Motors executives will start new posts in the company, part of the Detroit automaker's plan to allow for faster implementation of new vehicle and technology programs, and accelerate its go-to-market strategies.

Marissa West has been appointed senior vice president (SVP) and president of GM North America (reporting to GM North America president Rory Harvey), Ken Morris has been named SVP of product programs, product safety, and motorsports, and Josh Tavel has been appointed SVP of energy storage and propulsion, research and development and manufacturing engineering.

While West is currently president and managing director of GM Canada, Morris is VP of global vehicle and propulsion teams, and Tavel is Global VP of customer care and aftersales. Mr. Morris will retain his current responsibilities.

Meanwhile, GM executive vice president of global product development, purchasing and supply chain Doug Parks has elected to retire after nearly 40 years with the automaker. We wish the best to all of them.
