General Motors Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer Chris Liddell announced today that he will leave the company April 1, 2011, having completed the largest public offering in history and stabilizing the company’s financial operations (believe us, we really think he had a lot do with GM’s bounce back).
Liddell, 52, left Microsoft and joined GM in January, 2010 and led the company’s financial and accounting operations on a global basis.
“Chris was a major contributor during a pivotal time in the company’s history,” said Dan Akerson, GM chairman and CEO. “He guided the company’s IPO process and established a good financial foundation for the future.”
A guy by the name of Dan Ammann will succeed Liddell as CFO of GM, effective April 1, 2011. Ammann, 38, is currently GM vice president, finance and treasurer.
“I came to General Motors to be part of something great,” said Liddell. “My objective was to help rebuild this iconic company and I am particularly pleased that through this process, we have also developed a strong successor in Dan Ammann.”
