(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 -- Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich. (12th CD), issued the following news release:
Today, Congressman John D. Dingell (D-MI12) issued the statement below following General Motors' announcement that CEO Dan Akerson will step down in January and be succeeded by Executive Vice President for Global Product Development Mary Barra.
"Under Dan Akerson's leadership, General Motors has emerged from the trying times it faced to see quarter after quarter of continued success. I am proud to have worked closely with Dan to see to it that GM and the other domestic automakers have come back stronger than ever. Dan's steadfast leadership, along with the efforts of American working men and women, successfully brought the company through a period of remarkable economic uncertainty. I am thankful for his leadership as CEO and look forward to his continued friendship. Deborah and I wish him and his wife Kara a long, happy, and healthy retirement earned by distinguished service.
"Mary Barra's 33 years of service have shown her natural ability as a leader, and the success the company has enjoyed under her guidance is proof of that. I commend GM for recognizing Mary's remarkable talents and naming her the company's first female CEO. I have known Mary for decades and look forward to GM's continued success under her already proven leadership."
