As part of the latest management shake up at General Motors that is seeing dozens of executives change roles in areas of product planning, vehicle engineering, purchasing and supply chain, Susanna Webber is moving from her position as executive director for global logistics to become GM Europe's vice president for global purchasing and supply chain, effective September 1st this year.

During the bankruptcy proceedings, Webber also played a critical role in supplier relations as the lead representative for supplier communication for global purchasing and supply chain, where she won praise for helping to maintain healthy communication with suppliers during that period. This mammoth task included rerunning the entire contract assumption and assignment for more than 700,000 contracts across GM's various organisations and included the analysis of every supplier contract from the bankrupt company to decide which were going to be moved to the new entity, all the while ensuring that production and deliveries were not interrupted. She and her team set up a call centre that was open 24/7 for the first three weeks. It was part of an experience that appears to have had meaningful repercussions for the OEM's supplier and provider relationships in general, with recent improvements shown in GM's ratings from the Michigan-based consultancy Planning Perspective's suppliers relations index. Webber told Automotive Logistics magazine in the forthcoming cover feature interview of the July-September issue that the company was now much more focused on taking suggestions and listening to its suppliers, including logistics providers, on details ranging from operations to the request for quote process. "What we experienced through the bankruptcy was a long, eye-opening lesson in terms of how we worked and interfaced both as a company and with our suppliers and providers," she said.

...
General Motors has announced that Susanna Webber, vice-president of global purchasing and supply chain Europe for the last four years, is being appointed president and managing director of GM Russia with immediate effect.

Since taking over the job in Europe in 2010, Webber has also overseen the carmaker during a difficult time. After the company closed its plant in Belgium in 2010, it is in the process of closing another plant in Bochum, Germany. However, the carmaker has begun to see its sales and finances stabilise in Europe. On the supply chain side, it has made considerable progress, including the introduction of a new order management and forecasting system.
Webber is also said to have played an important role in GM's deal with PSA to outsource most of its logistics management to Gefco, which took over operations as '4PL' last year ( read the latest on the project here).

Webber started her career with GM in 1997 and has held various positions in purchasing, supply chain and cost management. In 2010, Webber was made responsible for Purchasing and Supply Chain in Europe.
