GM names new VP of U.S. sales

The head of General Motors’ Buick-GMC brands will oversee the automaker’s U.S. sales, the company announced this evening.

Susan Docherty, 46, will succeed Mark LaNeve as vice president of U.S. sales. She will become a part of GM’s executive committee.
 

LaNeve announced earlier today that he is leaving GM for a non-automotive industry job.
 

"Susan will bring a wealth of experience from previous marketing and sales assignments," GM CEO Fritz Henderson said in a statement. "I have confidence that she will bring a new perspective to the position as she guides a new, lean, and customer-focused dealer network."
 

She became the head of GM’s Buick-Pontiac-GMC channel in June 2008. She’s held a slew of positions within the company, including general manager of the Hummer Division.
