Debbie Dingell to take GM buyout

David Shepardson / Detroit News Washington Bureau

Washington — Debbie Dingell, a long-time General Motors Co. executive, will leave the Detroit automaker on Oct. 1, the company said Monday.

Dingell, who is vice chairman of the General Motors Foundation and executive director of public affairs and community relations at GM, has opted to accept an incentive package as part of the automaker’s efforts to pare back its executive ranks by 35 percent. The terms of her buyout agreement were not disclosed.

The move will leave GM without one of its best-known Democrats in Washington and follows the announced departure of another key GM voice on public policy: Beth Lowery, GM’s top environmental official.
