    GM hires ex-chief of NHTSA David Strickland to run regulatory affairs

    General Motors has hired the former chief of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to head global regulatory affairs for the automaker. 

    GM said Wednesday that David Strickland will join the company as vice president of Global Regulatory Affairs starting Oct. 1. He will report to Omar Vargas, GM vice president and head of Global Public Policy.

    Strickland is currently the staff director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation (Senate Commerce). He served as administrator of NHTSA during the Obama Administration, from 2010 to 2014.

    “David has an extensive background working on a wide variety of transportation and auto industry policy issues,” Vargas said in a statement. “His knowledge of the issues and ability to work collaboratively with government and industry make him the perfect leader to help drive regulatory policies in support of GM’s growth initiatives, including our vision for an all-electric and autonomous future.”

    GM has said it will bring 30 new EVs to market by mid decade with a vision to offer an all-electric light-duty lineup of vehicles by 2035.
