Linda Marshall named as new president of GM's OnStar

General Motors (GM) has announced that Linda Marshall has been appointed president of OnStar, effective February 1, 2011. She succeeds J Christopher Preuss, who has elected to leave the company to launch a communications consultancy practice. Marshall joined GM in November 2010 as executive director of OnStar global business strategy and development. Prior to joining GM, she was the chief operating officer for Revol Wireless.

OnStar – which is a wholly owned subsidiary of GM – is a leading provider of connected safety and security solutions, value-added mobility services and advanced information technology. Currently available on more than 40 GM models, OnStar soon will be available for installation on most other vehicles already on the road through local electronics retailers.

Marshall has more than two decades of experience in the telecommunications industry, including senior executive-level roles at both Sprint Nextel and Verizon Wireless. She holds a degree in accounting and business from Elmhurst College and has completed the executive management program at Stanford University. Stephen J Girsky, vice chairman of corporate strategy and business development, commented, “As we continue to evolve the OnStar brand and bring new features to our customers, we believe Linda’s deep experience can take the brand and platform to the next level. Over the past year, Chris Preuss was instrumental in helping create a clear vision and strategy for aligning OnStar with GM infotainment plans and entering the retail market. We thank Chris for his many contributions to GM and wish him every success.”
