GM Considers Brazil Options With Akerson’s Global Reorganization

As General Motors Co. Chief Executive Officer Dan Akerson works on a global corporate reorganization, the decisions he faces are playing out in one of the company’s most important emerging markets: Brazil.

The automaker is evaluating how it will structure management in the country after the former president of GM Brazil, Grace Lieblein, switched to head of global purchasing in December. GM is holding off on replacing her as it determines what kind of role the person will have, said Jaime Ardila, president of GM South America.
