• GM CEO Barra's pay dipped slightly to just under $22 million in 2018

    General Motors Co's top executive, Mary Barra, received a compensation package worth just under $22 million in 2018, slightly less than the previous year, according to the No. 1 U.S. automaker's proxy statement released on Thursday. GM also said two members of the board of directors - former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, retired Admiral Michael Mullen and the former CEO of ConocoPhillips , James Mulva - will not stand for re-election. GM and the rest of the auto industry are facing an expected decline in U.S. demand this year, slowing sales in the world's largest auto market in China and potential costly tariffs that could be imposed by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump as it negotiates new trade deals with China, Europe and Japan.
