A native of Syracuse, New York, Quattrone began his four-decade GM career in 1975 at the Fisher Body Syracuse plant, taking over GM’s top global HR position in April 2014.

Jose Tomas is new to GM, having spent the last 20 years of his career building strong human resources experience in the healthcare, food service, and transportation and logistics industries.
