Kent Kresa was on the GM Board for 10 years when he was tapped by the Obama Administration in January 2009 to become Chairman of that Board and lead the company thru bankruptcy proceedings sponsored by the Government. In this talk, he will describe the reasons it happened, who played major roles in the activity and outcome, and some of the lessons learned. The process took only 40 days even though it was the fourth largest emergence from bankruptcy ever accomplished in America.
