GM CEO says pickup truck debut going smoothly


“It just takes attention to detail, crisp execution. Inspect, inspect, inspect, and I think we’ve got that down,” he said. “I won’t tell you that we’re going to be flawless, but that’s what we’re going to strive for.”

Akerson made his comments in front of about 2,000 workers at the company’s technical center in the Detroit suburb of Warren.

GM also announced at the ceremony that Alicia Boler-Davis, the company’s vice president of global quality and U.S. customer experience, has been promoted to senior vice president with global responsibilities for both quality and the customer buying experience.

GM shares were up 33 cents to $32.16 at midday.
