GM names interim purchasing chief
DETROIT -- General Motors has named Kim Brycz, a veteran purchasing executive, as interim purchasing chief while the company seeks a permanent replacement for Bob Socia, who became president of GM China Oct. 1.
Brycz, 51, the company's executive director of indirect materials, machinery and equipment, will oversee global purchasing while the company conducts a search for a permanent chief, a GM spokesman said.
Brycz joined Cadillac in 1983 as an assistant purchaser and has held a variety of GM purchasing assignments.
In 2010, she was named executive director in charge of electrical systems, batteries and hybrids. Later that year, she received her current assignment overseeing GM's purchase of nonproduct goods and services.
Automotive News named Brycz one of the 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry in 2010.
