General Motors has a new chief compliance officer on board. The automaker has named Jeffrey A. Taylor as the latest COO. He will report to Craig Glidden, executive vice president and general counsel, and his position will be effective immediately.
Taylor will be responsible for GM’s ethics and compliance programs while supporting business operations and the leadership team to create the world’s best corporate culture. He will also oversee strategy, communications and training concerning GM’s code of conduct ‘Winning with Integrity’, which governs the ethical and legal obligations of GM’s Board, executives, and more than 75,000 employees around the world.
“Jeff is a highly accomplished attorney who has managed extremely complex legal issues,” said Glidden. “His appointment reflects GM’s commitment to the highest levels of global ethics and the strict compliance with the law and internal policies.”
