General Motors Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner, who has been acting president of GMNA for over a year, has announced that Troy Clarke has been appointed to the position. Clarke has been president of GM Asia Pacific since 2004.
The 51 year-old Clarke joined GM at the Pontiac division in 1973. He moved to GM de Mexico in 1997, ultimately becoming president and managing director of the Mexico operation. He moved back to the U.S. in 2001, first as vice president of labor relations, and later as vice president of manufacturing and labor relations.

David "Nick" Reilly, president and CEO of GM Daewoo Auto & Technology Co. in South Korea, becomes GM's new president GM Asia Pacific.

Clarke's North America labor relations background (he was GM's chief negotiator during the 2003 labor negotiations) should prove very useful as GM tries to unravel the Delphi mess and restructure its own North America operations.
