Continuing a trend of major management shifts, General Motors has named Christopher Liddell the automaker's new CFO. Liddell, who left a position as Microsoft's financial officer last month, replaces Ray Young, who has held the job since March 2008.
The appointment, effective January 1, comes just weeks after GM CEO Fritz Henderson's resignation.
From The New York Times:
Mr. Liddell...is the highest-ranking executive hired by G.M. under Edward E. Whitacre Jr., the automaker's chairman and interim chief executive....Among his expected responsibilities at G.M. will be to oversee a public stock offering as soon as next year.
