GM Reassigns Former Sales Boss To International Post

DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors Co. says it has reassigned its former U.S. sales chief to a similar post in its international operations.

The automaker says Susan Docherty will be vice president of international sales and marketing effective June 1.

Docherty will coordinate sales efforts in GM's Asia, Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Russian markets. She will report to Tim Lee, president of international operations.

GM says international operations account for almost half of its sales.

Docherty had been vice president of U.S. sales, service and marketing. Her job eventually shrank to just marketing. She was replaced in that position earlier this month by former Hyundai marketing head Joel Ewanick.
