GMSA head retires

2009-08-17 10:14
President and managing director of General Motors South Africa (GMSA) and African Operations Steve Koch is set to retire to return to the United States, the company said on Friday.

"Steve spent the last two decades of his 40-year career operating outside the United States, and will take advantage of the current provisions offered under the special retirement window in North America to reconnect with family back home," said Nick Reilly, executive vice president of General Motors International Operations.

Koch's retirement would become effective on October 1.

He began his career in the automobile industry in 1969 and became president of GMSA in July 2007.

"Steve's replacement will be announced at a later stage," GMSA said.

General Motors recently restructured its operations into two regions, North America (including the US, Canada and Mexico) and GM International Operations (GMIO), which includes all operations outside North America.

Based in Shanghai, China, GMIO will be operational from 1 September. GMSA will be included in this new structure.
