The autonomous vehicle wing of GM, Cruise Automation, gets a new CEO in Dan Ammann. The new CEO will take the reins of the self-driving car subsidiary of GM, which was acquired by GM in 2016.
Ammann will replace one of the co-founders and the current CEO of the company Kyle Vogt, who is expected to move into the role of chief technology officer.
According to GM’s CEO, Mary Barra, "these appointments further demonstrate the company’s commitment towards transforming mobility through the safe deployment of self-driving technology and move us closer to our vision for a future with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion."
Cruise has grown over the years and today employs more than 100 employees at its San Francisco headquarters.
