General Motors Co. in Detroit announced the appointment of Jeffrey Morrison as vice president of global purchasing and supply chain.
Morrison replaces Shilpan Amin, who was recently appointed GM senior vice president and president of GM International following the announcement of Steve Kiefer’s decision to retire after almost 40 years in the auto industry.
“Jeff’s extensive industry and leadership experience, especially in EV product development, procurement and support at the supplier level, positions him to continue the great progress we have made developing stronger relationships with the supplier community,” says Doug Parks, GM executive vice president of global product development, purchasing, and supply chain. “This will be critical as we continue to build a strong, scalable and sustainable EV supply chain to support the acceleration of our upcoming EV launches.”
Morrison has more than 25 years of experience in the global automotive industry and has worked for GM since 2006. He has led global engineering, procurement, and logistics organizations for GM in the U.S. and Germany. His previous assignments include executive roles in electrical systems and advanced technology, strategic planning, chassis systems, and global logistics.
Prior to joining GM, Morrison spent 10 years in various engineering, commercial, and consulting roles across the auto industry, leading strategic projects for global OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and financial investors on a wide range of technical and business issues. He began his career in 1996 at the Chrysler Corp.
Morrison earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and an MBA from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.
