About GM: Our Company

Our Company

At General Motors, we are passionate about earning customers for life.  This vision unites us as a team each and every day and is the hallmark of our customer-driven culture.  

In fact, there are a lot of exciting things to share about our company.  Our story starts on November 18, 2010, when we completed the world’s largest initial public offering, emerging with a solid financial foundation that enables us to produce great vehicles for our customers and build a bright future for employees, partners and shareholders.

Leading the way is our seasoned leadership team who set high standards for our company so that we can give you the best cars and trucks.  This means that we are committed to delivering vehicles with compelling designs, flawless quality and reliability, and leading safety, fuel economy and infotainment features.  All are intended to create that special bond that can only happen between a driver and their vehicle.

Making the world’s best vehicles can only happen with the world’s greatest employees.  We take great pride in our work, and take great care to deliver exceptional cars and a positive ownership experience to our customers around the world.
