Also, Barra and Suryadevara will talk with the Wall Street after the 1st September when officially duties will be released by the former CFO Stevens. In 2014, he got this job when the first women CEO Barra came into play of the automaker.

Every automaker is talking about how the executive leadership of GM is different from them and are quite impressed with the pre-bankruptcy company. If talking about gender balance, GM and Crosstown rival Ford are closest currently with the company mobility efforts overseen by Marcy Klevorn.

The move made by GM is highly impressive with people claiming that the best CEO ever for the GM is Barra who is dealing with the massive switch-roll when she started the role. She managed to take a tough decision and is highly appreciated for it.

She even pushed the GM to change the landscape of transportation with the launch of electric, long-range Chevy Bolt.
