In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos reviews General Motor's corporate leadership. CEO Ackerson got off to a rough start in 2010, but clearly has the intelligence and drive to make good things happen at GM. He is surrounded by executives who seem to be on board with what he wants to accomplish. However, GM is limited by what it can pay its executives, courtesy of the U.S. government bailout and continued U.S. government stock holding. This is making recruitment difficult and will hamper future efforts until GM can repurchase its stock from Uncle Sam.
