The head of General Motors' international operations, Tim Lee, is assuming oversight of the automaker's global manufacturing, as well.
Lee has been named GM vice president of global manufacturing, and Diana Tremblay, previously global chief manufacturing officer, has become vice president of manufacturing in North America.
The move gives more influence to Lee, who will continue to serve as president of GM International Operations, which includes the critical China market and includes 40% of the automaker's global production. He reports directly to CEO Dan Akerson, and Tremblay will report to Lee.
