Received an email tonight and verified it by checking "GM" stock quote, then news item.

Ron Zarella has left General Motors and returns to Bausch & Lomb as their CEO....Mr. Zarella was President of GM North American Operations.

Zippy :( :(

Mr Zarella will be replaced by Mr Gary Conger and Bob Lutz will take on additional title of Chairman of GM North America.

What role did Mr. Zarella play in the approval of the Pontiac Azcrack? Something like that never should have gotten to the clay stage, much less seen the light of day. That whole Proctor & Gamble crew need to start clearing their desks.

Ron Zarella getting the ax and going back to Bausch and Lomb is only part of the story.

The other part is the Z-man was replaced as President of GM N.A. by Gary Cowger *and* Bob Lutz was made Cowger's associate (and probably his boss) given the added title of Chairman of GM N.A. It is said that Cowger will handle the day-to-day stuff and Lutz will work on the strategic end.

Let me tell you, Zarella's departure is an event of major significance for General Motors. Thank god the horror of "brand management" may be comming to an end.
