Harold Kutner, former head of purchasing at General Motors, has been spotted at Covisint's US headquarters in Southfield, Michigan. But he's not having second thoughts about retirement.
Kutner, 61, a driving force in the creation of the online purchasing exchange in 2000, is not a Covisint employee and is not getting paid, the company says.
"He's not here every day, and he's just here for a few hours at a time," said Covisint spokesman Dan Jankowski. "He's helping us ... based on his knowledge of where the marketplace is going."
Kutner, a member of Covisint's board, retired in December 2001 after 39 years with GM.
