Amazon has reportedly hired GM’s outgoing executive vice president of global manufacturing, Alicia Boler Davis. In a press statement GM said Boler Davis would be replaced by Gerald Johnson. Dow Jones first reported on her departure.
Hers is the latest in a series of departures at the Detroit car maker.
Amazon recently led a $700 million investment round in electric vehicle makers, Rivian. Rivian’s all-electric pickup and SUV could pose a direct challenge to established truck manufacturers like General Motors.
