General Motors has appointed two fresh faces to their Global Public Policy team: Dan Turton, and Bryan Roosa.
Dan Turton is joining GM from Entergy – an energy production and distribution company headquartered in New Orleans. He’s no newbie to this line of work; at Entergy, he served as Vice President of Federal Governmental Affairs, heading up the company’s Washington, D.C. office. He will start at GM in very much the same capacity, serving as US Vice President of Federal and Administration Affairs, on January 12th, 2015.
In a release, an eager Turton stated: “I am thrilled to join General Motors and its Federal Affairs team. I look forward to continuing to build strong ties across both aisles in the Congress, and with federal agencies, to advance the priorities of one of America’s most important companies.”
Bryan Roosa, meanwhile, has already served as GM’s Executive Director of State Government Relations. His station with the automaker will be expanded to Executive Director for North America; he’ll continue to oversee company relations at the state and local levels, with the addition of Mexico and Canada to his list of domains.
“As the leading automotive manufacturer in the United States, GM also plays an important role throughout the entire North America region,” said Roosa. “I am excited to work with GM’s outstanding teams in Canada and Mexico to foster important relationships with their governments and elected leaders.”
