It’s not always that we hear of a woman being promoted as the Chief Financial Officer of an internationally reputed company.
And to think that an Indian origin woman is all set to upgrade from her present profile of Corporate Finance Vice President in an iconic establishment is indeed a spectacular achievement.
Dhivya Suryadevara is all raring to explore the upper echelons of General Motors’ management team.
Succeeding Chuck Stevens, Suryadevara, 39 will take charge from September 1, 2018 after a 11 month long stint in the company’s corporate affairs.
Mary Barra who is the Chief Executive Officer of General Motors, has initiated the promotion and this is the third such instance after previous appraisals of Alicia Boler Davis as executive Vice President of global manufacturing and Kim Brycz as senior Vice President of human resources.
I am proud to congratulate Dhivya Suryadevara on becoming CFO @GM. Dhivya’s experience and leadership well positions her to continue playing a key role in driving strong business results. https://t.co/FXvniGN5It
