GM has appointed Jeffrey Morrison as vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain.
Morrison’s appointment comes a week after GM’s previous VP of Global Purchase and Supply Chain, Shilpan Amin, was promoted to senior vice president and president of GM International. Amin was promoted to replace long-serving GM International boss Steve Kiefer, who was elected to retire.
Morrison has worked for GM since 2006 and has held a number of various logistics roles with the automaker. He led gloval engineering, procurement and logistics for GM in the U.S. and Germany and also held executive roles in its Electrical Systems and Advanced Technology, Strategic Planning, Chassis Systems and Global Logistics departments. He also spent ten years in various engineering, commercial and consulting roles across the auto industry prior to joining GM, working for other OEMs and Tier 1 automotive suppliers. He holds a master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan-Dearborn.
Doug Parks, GM executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, said Morrison is well-equipped to succeed in his new role given his past experience in EV product development.
“Jeff’s extensive industry and leadership experience, especially in EV product development, procurement and support at the supplier level, positions him to continue the great progress we have made developing stronger relationships with the supplier community,” Parks said. “This will be critical as we continue to build a strong, scalable and sustainable EV supply chain to support the acceleration of our upcoming EV launches.”
