Finch worked with GM for 41 years and stepped into his leadership role at the Tonawanda facility in 2006. His work began in 1978, however, when he moved to Michigan and held various leadership roles in GM’s manufacturing arm. He’s overseen billions of dollars in investments at the facility, which assembles various V8 and four-cylinder engines for the automaker. Total investments exceed $2.9 billion in the last decade.
GM tapped current Orion, Michigan, assistant plant manager Ram Ramanujam to succeed Finch.
