General Motors Co. said Thursday it’s shuffling around a number of quality, purchasing, powertrain and connected vehicle executives.

The Detroit automaker said Alicia Boler-Davis, currently its senior vice president, global quality and customer experience, will replace Mary Chan as its vice president, global connected customer, once Chan leaves GM early next year to pursue other opportunities. Chan was hired in 2012 and has helped GM with its in-vehicle 4G LTE production.

Consequently, Grace Lieblein, GM’s vice president, global purchasing and supply chain will replace Boler-Davis. Both will report to CEO Mary Barra.

Steve Kiefer, GM’s vice president, global powertrain, will replace Lieblein and Dan Nicholson, executive director of powertrain embedded controls, will replace Kiefer. Both will report to Mark Reuss, GM’s head of global product development, purchasing and supply chain.

All of the moves are effective immediately.
