September 5, 2019 – General Motors says it has named Scott Bell as its new president and managing director for GM Canada as the current president moves on to a new role at the company.

Bell steps into the role of president from his position as vice-president of sales, service and marketing for GM Canada.

The automaker says current president Travis Hester will move to the newly formed position of global vice-president of customer experience.

It says the transition will begin immediately.

Hester had been in the role since April 2018, leading the division though a major cutback in operations at the company's Oshawa plant.

The plant, originally slated for effective closure this year at a loss of some 2,600 unionized jobs, will instead be converted into a parts operation that will save about 300 of those jobs.
