GM's executive director for global logistics, Susanna Webber (pictured), told Automotive Logistics magazine that there is now more influence from the supply chain side of the organisation when it comes to making important decisions. "We have become an equal person sitting at the table. That is a result of GM looking at all the elements of cost," she said.
"The fact that we are asking ourselves and our providers what we can do to improve and then act on it is providing the opportunity to really do better," said Webber. That improvement appears to have started to gain ground across General Motor's supplier relations, as a recently released survey by Planning Perspective, a consultancy, revealed considerable improvements.

Webber takes over as head of GM Russia Read this in:
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. Her appointment is part of a restructuring of GM's Russian operations that will include reduced production and a push for more parts localisation.
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.
