General Motors appointed Dhivya Suryadevara vice president of finance and treasurer, effective July 1. She will succeed Niharika Taskar Ramdev, who has been named CFO for GM’s international operations.
Suryadevara, 35, will remain CEO and chief investment officer of GM Asset Management, a company said.
“Dhivya’s experience in leading our asset management team will serve her well in this important role,” General Motors CFO Chuck Stevens said in a statement. “I’m confident that she will build on the great work the team has accomplished under Niharika’s leadership. Niharika has done an excellent job over the past year as we improved our investment grade ratings and introduced a comprehensive capital allocation framework.”
Suryadevara will oversee GM’s global treasury operations, such as capital planning, capital market activities and worldwide banking. She will also contribute to business development, risk management and investor relations.
Surydevara will continue reporting to Stevens and will work out of GM’s New York and Detroit offices, a spokesman said.
She took on her role as chief investment officer of GM Asset Management in 2013. Before then, she served as managing director of investment strategy and fixed income for GM Asset Management. She joined GM in 2004.
