Buick-GMC General Manager Reportedly Leaves After Nine-Day Stint

Less than 24 hours after Chevrolet’s general manager announced his retirement from General Motors, Michael Richards -- the newly appointed general manager of Buick and GMC -- has also reportedly left the company.

Richards was hired on December 1, replacing Susan Docherty, who was recently promoted to GM’s vice president of U.S. sales. Bloomberg reports Richards has left the company after less than 9 days at his new post. GM could not be reached for comment.

Before his position at Buick and GMC, Richards worked at Ford for nearly 27 years, in a myriad of marketing and sales positions. Richards left Ford in 2008, joining Trilogy -- an electronic marketing company that works with automotive business -- shortly thereafter.
