DETROIT -- General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz says he expects to continue as a part-time adviser to GM after retiring at years end.
Lutz, 77, is serving as a senior adviser for the remainder of the year, focusing on product development and design. He made his comments before a speech Thursday in Detroit.
He joined GM in 2001 as vice chairman for product development, also serving from 2001 to 2005 as chairman of GM North America. He became vice chairman for global product development in 2005. Thomas Stephens, head of GM Powertrain, succeeded him in that position in April.
