Former product planner Rocha steps in as CEO of GM Korea
Rocha will take over the position from John Buttermore, who has been serving as the interim chief of the global carmaker’s Korean unit, on March 1, GM Korea said in a statement.
Buttermore has headed the company since January, following the abrupt resignation of former chief executive Mike Arcamone.
Rocha, a native of Brazil, began his career at GM in 1979. He also worked for GM Daewoo Auto & Technology, the predecessor of GM Korea, in 2006 in its product planning and program management department. Yonhap
