Chuck Stevens Is New GM CFO
Earlier this month, General Motors named Chuck Stevens the executive vice president and chief financial officer of the global company. This change went into effect on January 15, 2014, following former CFO, Dan Ammann’s, promotion to company president. Stevens will be leaving his role of CFO of GM North America to John Stapleton.
The shuffling around at General Motors, which includes Mary Barra’s promotion to CEO, came about after former CEO, Dan Akerson, announced his retirement. Dan has stepped down to help care for his wife, who is in the advanced stages of breast cancer.

“Chuck’s extensive experience in leading finance operations and driving profitable growth all around the world makes him the perfect choice to help our team drive GM’s global performance to new heights,” commented Mary Barra.
Chuck Stevens has been with General Motors for over thirty years. He first began his career in the Buick Motor Division back in 1983. He has also held positions of leadership in Singapore, Thailand, China, and Indonesia, and became CFO of GM North America in early 2010.
“The plan is to build on the good progress made by the finance team in driving the right business decisions,” said Stevens. “I look forward to working with the GM team to drive even stronger business results.”
We extend our well wishes to Stevens, Barra, Stapleton, and all others learning the ropes of their new positions at General Motors.
