Frederick "Fritz" Henderson
Fritz Henderson took over as General Motors's chief execution when Rick Wagoner, GM’s chief executive for nine years, was told to step down by the Obama administration's auto task-force on March 29, 2009.
President Obama gave Henderson 60 days (and sufficient working capital) to drive through proposed changes and to show evidence that GM can repair its balance-sheet and become capable of generating positive cash flow.
