GM’s new president Ammann out to prove he is not a ‘bean counter’

Named to his new position on Tuesday, Dan Ammann will fill what many analysts and investors saw as a gap in his resume by managing GM’s regional operations around the globe and perhaps preparing himself to take over as CEO one day. Ammann has tried to prove his “car guy” credentials in several ways, including being one of only about 30 company executives who are certified to drive at high speeds at GM’s Michigan test track. GM did not make Ammann available to comment Independent auto analyst Maryann Keller said that Ammann complements the skills of Mary Barra, who will replace retiring CEO Dan Akerson in January.
