Just spoke to Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors about the Lordstown Ohio plant, I am not happy that it is closed when everything else in our Country is BOOMING, i asked Mary Barra to sell General Motors or do something quickly. Mary Barra blamed the UAW Union — I don't care, I just want it open !
It's about time the top of General Motors started to recognize there is a problem. CEO Mary Barra making an appearance is a start. But General Motors needs to do much more than General Motors.
A deal like this is about convincing shareholders that you are more credible than the incumbent management, would investors buy the idea that Sergio Marchionne could run GM better than Mary Barra? Possibly, but it won't be easy.
