It was a piece of shocking news for us at Naijauto.com on hearing that the head of General Motors’ (GM) car-sharing service, Julia Steyn will be leaving the company soon according to reports.
Although General Motors did not comment or confirm this news immediately, Julia Steyn is already finalizing her separation terms with the car-sharing company.
In 2012, at Goldman Sachs and Alcoa, the executive had come to GM after stints. And according to the company’s records, the separate GM’s division which concentrated on ride-sharing and urban transportation founded in 2016 was taken over by Julia Steyn at Maven.
In 2018, it was also recorded that Maven had unveiled a service that enabled/allowed GM’s customers who were owners or on lease to put up their vehicles for short-term rentals.

General Motors could generally be seen to be undergoing some modest reorganization in their management. If you remember that just last year (2018), Johan De Nysschen, Head of GM’s Cadillac division stepped down as well. Also, sometimes in late 2018, the former GM’s president, Dan Ammann became the CEO of the company’s cruise self-driving division which made the GM’s product car chief and Vice president, Mark Reuss climb the ladder up to become the new president.
One would be right to say that the GM’s CEO, Mary Barra has been trying to place the company in a position where electric and autonomous vehicles will be its bigger focus and revenue source as their customers would never have to fall into the current traditional model of ownership.
