LinkedIn +

General Motors has announced that Dan Ammann, CEO of Cruise, is leaving the company with immediate effect. Kyle Vogt, Cruise president and CTO, will serve as interim CEO and Wesley Bush, the former chairman and CEO of Northrop Grumman and a GM board member, will join the Cruise board.

Alongside this leadership change, GM intends to accelerate the strategy it detailed during its recent investor day, in which Cruise will play an integral role in building GM’s autonomous vehicle (AV) platform as the company pursues AV markets beyond rideshare and delivery. GM reinforced that it is deeply committed to its vision of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, and AV technology will still play a critical role in realizing it.
