General Motors has appointed Steve Hill as vice president of US sales and service, replacing Alan Batey who was promoted president of GM North America. Since 2010, Hill has been vice president of GM's Customer Care and Aftersales division in North America, overseeing vehicle service, parts and other operations in GM's retail network.

US sales chief for Chevrolet Don Johnson and sales chief for Buick-GMC Brian Sweeney will be reporting to Hill. In his new role, Hill will oversee GM's US Operations unit led by Kurt McNeil, and fleet sales headed by Ed Peper.

Replacing Hill vice president of GM's Customer Care and Aftersales division in North America is Tim Turvey, currently executive director of Customer Care and Aftersales sales and marketing. Both Hill and Turvey will report to Batey, the newly appointed president of GM North America.

"Both Steve and Tim have proven track records of delivering strong business results and keeping our customers at the center of everything they do," Batey said in an internal GM announcement of the appointment. Batey replaced Mark Reuss, who is now GM's global product chief.

Mary Barra is now GM’s chief executive, replacing the retired Dan Akerson. Hill started his career at GM and has held a number of sales positions, mostly at Cadillac. He also held roles at Hummer, retail planning and customer relationship management. [source: GM]
