Ed Whitacre Becomes Permanent CEO of GM


General Motors made an official statement earlier today that Ed Whitacre Jr. will remain as CEO of GM in a more permanent position. Ed Whitacre had originally been appointed as interim CEO when Fritz Henderson left back in December of last year.

Whitacre stated, “The board of directors asked if I would be willing to stay on at GM and help continue the company’s road back to success. Having spent the past few months learning the business, meeting with our employees, customers and dealers, and working with the GM leadership team, I was both honored and pleased to accept this role.”

What’s the first thing on the the new CEO’s plate? Saab. While the original deal fell through last week, Spyker has now expressed interest in the Swedish marque and had stated to be in talks with GM about a possible buy over. However if this deal falls through we hope Ed Whitacre has a secret plan.

Update: Ed Whitacre Jr. denies rumors of any talks with Spyker.
