GM CEO Mary Barra Aiming To Be The Safest In The Industry

GM CEO Mary Barra on how investors and consumers should react to recent recalls:

“I think they should look and see how quickly we’re taking actions, how small the recalls are, that coupled with what we’re doing from the way we are engineering our vehicles and the improvements we are making to really take a systems approach and then look at the vehicles we have to date. These are the best vehicles that we have had in my career at General Motors and they are being externally recognized as well as industry best.”

GM CEO Mary Barra on if recalls will continue:

“I’m going to work hard to create the systems as we go forward so that we won’t have this, but I’m always going to take the action to do the right thing for the customer. I think it’s very important that we have Ken Feinberg, who’s independent, who has tremendous experience to evaluate each situation and we want to do the right thing. All along I’ve said, those that may have been impacted by this we want to reach every single one of them just like we’re working hard to get every single vehicle that has been recalled fixed, we remain committed to that.”

GM CEO Mary Barra on GM moving forward:

“At General Motors we’ve set our target to be the safest in the industry and we’re taking steps, we’ve been very clear about sharing them, the way we are changing and improving the way we do engineering’s from a systems prospective. The robustness of our processes, diving deep into the supply base to make sure we have quality, and partnering with our suppliers, we’re going to continue to do that. NHSTA has a very important role to play in the industry but General Motors has very aggressive goals we are working on.”
