CARROLL APPOINTED GROUP DIRECTOR, FINANCE, AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS GROUP;
 VACKETTA TO RETIRE
 PONTIAC, Mich., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The appointment of Bill J. Carroll as group director of finance for the Automotive Components Group was announced today by J.T. Battenberg III, vice president of General Motors (NYSE: GM) and group executive in charge of the Automotive Components Group Worldwide (ACG). The appointment is effective Sept. 1, 1992. Carroll succeeds John P. Vacketta who will retire Sept. 1.
 Carroll joined General Motors as a member of the Chevrolet financial staff in Cleveland in 1960. After serving in a number of supervisory positions, he was transferred in 1967 to Detroit and named senior statistician at Chevrolet Central Office.
 In 1972, Carroll was named director, budget controls, Chevrolet; and in 1976, he was transferred to the General Motors financial staff and named director, procedures and methods. In 1976, he was named director, operations analysis; and two years later, he transferred to Pontiac Motor Division as assistant divisional comptroller. He transferred to Cadillac Motor Division in a similar position in July 1982. Two months later, he was named comptroller, General Motors Truck & Bus manufacturing operations. Carroll was named comptroller, AC Rochester Division, in 1987 and was serving in that position at the time of his current promotion.
 Carroll received a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Berea College in 1960 and a master of science degree in business administration from Michigan State University in 1972.
 Vacketta came to General Motors Central Foundry Division plant at Danville, Ill., in 1956, after graduating from the University of Illinois. His career reflects increasing levels of financial management responsibility in a succession of GM vehicle and component operations and corporate financial staff assignments.
 "John has been successful in his career as a GM financial manager because of his persistent attention to the development of the people he worked with," said Battenberg. "As he moves into retirement, John leaves us a legacy of strong, competent financial people."
 After moving to GM Financial Staff in 1965, Vacketta became assistant comptroller at Chevrolet Division in 1972 and returned to components operations as divisional comptroller at Delco Products (now Delco Chassis) in 1974. He moved to a similar position at the former Fisher Body Division in 1977 before becoming group financial director for the Chevrolet-Pontiac-GM of Canada organization in 1984.
 He became the first group financial director of ACG Worldwide when it was organized in 1988.
 The appointment of Ronald M. Pirtle of GM Strategic Planning to replace Carroll at AC Rochester is being announced there today. Pirtle joined GM in 1972, and holds a master's degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration. His appointment is also effective Sept. 1, 1992.
