General Motors CEO Dan Akerson is 64-years-old. While he’s got nothing on Bob Lutz, who is 81-years-young and still in the business, reports are indicating that Akerson’s retirement may happen within the next three years, based on his revised compensation according to GM’s annual proxy statement.
While GM’s PR team can’t speak for what Akerson will actually end up retiring or not, his compensation restructuring — which saw a 44% increase in 2012 from 2011 — was based on the that intention, according to Automotive News.
Who would replace him is completely left up to speculation. While us enthusiasts champion Mark Reuss, the numbers-driven success that Tim Lee is currently overseeing in China cannot be ignored.
