General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) chief executive Mary Barra announced the creation of a global product integrity group. Barra said GM’s product development team will oversee the new product integrity organization and it will report directly to Mark Reuss, the head of global product development. This comes after the company faced heavy scrutiny for an ignition-switch defect that spurred a recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. Based on a timeline released by the company, GM employees were aware of a possible defect at least a decade earlier.
