Manoli Katakis Editorial Director
Manoli (or “Manny”) carries Motor City oil in his veins. Living just north of Detroit, he feels, sees and understands just how GM and the rest of the American automotive industry impact his state (and country) on a level few others do. His background includes a fancy diploma from Oakland University with a degree in journalism sprinkled in with some advertising and communications.
Manoli has been a GM fan all of his life. However, he goes beyond just the typical passion for cars: he also analyzes and constantly brings up points on subjects that seem to go unnoticed. While he may not be much of a gear head, his knowledge of the industry as a whole and passion for writing are exactly what lured him onto The GM Authority Team. His biggest field of expertise is The General’s full size truck models, especially the powerhouse Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra HD machines.
