ExxonMobil Hires Former GM President Dan Ammann8
Texas-based multinational oil and gas corporation ExxonMobil has hired former GM president Dan Ammann to serve as president of its Low Carbon Solutions arm, which was established last February.
Ammann, 50, served as the president of GM from his appointment in January 2014 until January 2019, when he was named the CEO of the automaker’s Cruise autonomous vehicle development subsidiary. The New Zealander was let go from Cruise late last year following a fallout with GM CEO Mary Barra over what direction to take the self-driving vehicle arm in.
ExxonMobil says the Low Carbon Solutions business that Ammann will lead is tasked with commercializing the company’s low-emission product portfolio “with the objective to create long-term shareholder value and support global emission-reduction efforts.” Low Carbon Solutions is focused on commercializing technologies such as carbon capture and storage, as well as hydrogen and low-emission fuels, the company says. ExxonMobil’s LaBarge facility in Wyoming can capture up to 7 million metric tons of CO2 per year, making it the largest carbon capture industrial facility in the world.
Ammann replaces Joe Blommaert in hiw new role, a longtime ExxonMobil executive who has elected to retire after 35 years with the company.
“We welcome Dan to ExxonMobil and will use his knowledge and experience to continue to build our Low Carbon Solutions business,” said Darren Woods, ExxonMobil CEO and chairman. “I thank Joe for his contributions to the company’s success and the significant progress made in developing our lower-emissions business. I wish Joe all the best in retirement.”
Prior to joining GM, Ammann worked as an investment banker with Credit Suisse First Boston from 1994 until 1999, when he moved to Morgan Stanley. He joined GM in 2010 as treasurer amidst its bankruptcy restructuring and was later named Chief Financial Officer of GM in 2011. Ammann received a bachelor’s degree in management studies from the University of Waikato in New Zealand.

Low Carbon Solutions Arm HAHA
Idk if you heard, exon has been taken over by Blackrock. Blackrock has 6 of the 10 board seats. Blackrock is the #1 investor in companies that import “green” energy from China. Aka all the profits from government programs to build solar farms and wind turbines line Blackrocka pockets. They want exon out of business as the less oil exon produces, the more sales from Uncle Sam the elicit. Loss 1 investment, corner another market.
Blackrock is also the 1 and only company the CCP allows to incorporate there without being owned by the party. Let’s go Brandon.
Don’t be a coward you can use your own name to say that.
You aren’t the real h4cksaw.
