Report: Fortune Magazine nominates GM CEO, Mary Barra, as “Crisis Manager of the Year”

No matter what way you argue, nobody can deny that General Motors’ current CEO, Mary Barra, never had it easy when she was stepping up to the throne of America’s largest automobile conglomerate. This is obviously due to the fact that General Motors was in serious trouble just a few years back, and Barra was elected to continue cleaning up the mess in January of 2014, following some help with the government in 2008 and after the succession of Dan Akerson.

But needless to day, Barra has done well to turn General Motors around as they are making some of the best cars they’ve ever made since their last spike in success, which was quite a long time ago.

Barra has done so well in fact, that Fortune Magazine nominated and declared her to be the “Crisis Manager of the Year,” particularly since about two weeks after her appointment as CEO, GM issued a recall of around 30 million cars worldwide, the largest ever in history. But more so, Barra was praised for her ability to control the situation with consistency.

But GM’s debacles aren’t over and Barra still has much work to do.

Do you agree with Fortune Magazine’s decision? Ponder about in the comments.
