Fritz Henderson, the new CEO of the new General Motors, is saying all the right things as the automaker makes it way out of the bankruptcy desert. Words, however, only go so far. The key to GM profitability is strictly-tied to the rebuilding of consumer confidence.
Henderson says the new company will focus on making cars and trucks that consumers actually want to drive. He points to innovation as the new GM creed. And he promises the company will pay back the government loans.
It's good talk. Let's hope the action is just as good.
