General Motors Co. announced Tuesday Mary Barra will take over as its new chief executive early next year, making her the first female to take the helm of a major global automaker.
Ms. Barra, 51, will succeed Dan Akerson in the role when he steps down as chairman and CEO on Jan. 15, 2014, the company said.
The decision comes one day after the U.S. Treasury announced it had sold its remaining common stock in the Detroit automaker stemming from the US$60-billion government bailout of the company in 2009 during the economic crisis.
