Wayne Cherry, General Motors' vice president of design, turns 65 in September 2002. We asked him about his future:
What are your plans? There has been talk that you might retire soon.
There seems to be a lot of talk about that. Everybody asks me about it. The retirement age at GM is 65; that's what I am planning on. I've been putting seven days a week in this since I was in my 20s. I've put a lot of work in building up a team. The automotive business is still the most exciting business there is, and I love it, and I am having a great time.
