I only get others riled up when I make any comments regarding GM.
Oh what the heck. GM has killed off Pontiac, Oldsmobile, and Saturn here in the US. They killed off Saab, their only truly global brand. They killed off Holden. They removed Isuzu and Daewoo from the US. They exited all their non-automotive businesses, and their automotive components businesses.
Now they are reported to be selling off their best known European Operations, one of which is home to their global Design Center for mid-sized cars.
Not a pretty picture for business sustainability and growth. I still have lots of friends working at GM and would hate to see the company fail.
Any word on who will have ownership of the GM plants in Uzbekistan and St Petersburg Russia following this sale? No, this is not a bad joke. I briefly considered taking a short term assignment in Uzbekistan to assist with closing out that plant's construction project, and I have former co-workers currently assigned in a similar capacity at St Petersburg. I wonder if these are tied to Opel, or GM European Operations (pretty much a moniker for Opel I think) or some other portion of GM?
