General Motors Executives Meet With Germany Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel3
As expected, a delegation of General Motors executives met with German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and Chief of the German Chancellery Ronald Pofalla on April 11th. The GM executives consisted of CEO Dan Akerson, Deputy Chairman of the GM Board and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Adam Opel AG Steve Girsky, Chairman of the Management Board of Adam Opel AG and President General Motors Europe Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, and Vice President Public Policy at Adam Opel AG Joachim Koschnicke.
The GM and Opel executives notified the Chancellor of the deliberations that took place during its strategy conference from April 9 – 11 in Germany, placing a focus on the implementation of Opel’s ten-year “DRIVE!2022” plan. Another topic du jour was GM’s commitment to Germany and to Opel.
“GM and Opel have been together since 1929 and will stay together. And together we will also return to profitability in Europe. We have the strategy. We have the team. We have the cars. Germany is and remains the home and the backbone of Opel,” said Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann after the meeting with the Chancellor.
