General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) expelled the head of its struggling Opel/Vauxhaull unit amid rising frustration with the tempo of the turnaround of the European business, according to a person with knowledge about the GM matter said.
The auto maker reported on Thursday that Vice Chairman Steve Girsky, who presently heads Opel’s supervisory board, will take over the business from Karl-Friedrich Stracke while the corporation looks for a substitute.
Mr. Stracke took over Opel in January after General Motors Chief Executive officer Dan Akerson quitted another Opel Chief Executive Officer, Nick Reilly, who also was the corporations Europe head. The person with knowledge about the matter said that dissatisfaction over Mr. Reilly’s inability to move the Opel restructuring forward played a job in his exit also.
