 GM EXECUTIVE RETIRES
 DETROIT, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The retirement of John E. Rhame


following a career of more than 41 years in General Motors domestic and international operations was announced today by John F. Smith Jr., vice chairman of GM in charge of international operations.
 Rhame will retire April 1, 1992, after serving four years as vice president in charge of International Export, African and Mideast Operations.
 "John's leadership in a wide variety of assignments in both GM's international and domestic operations have benefited the corporation tremendously," said Smith. "His diverse financial and operating background have helped position GM for the future, especially in the area of North American export sales and the development of new markets worldwide."
 Rhame was born in Flint, Mich., Aug. 9, 1928, and moved to Galt, Ontario, Canada in 1931. He received a bachelor of commerce degree in commerce and finance from the University of Toronto in 1951. In 1978, he completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard University.
 Rhame joined General Motors in 1951 as a timekeeper with the former Frigidaire Products of Canada Ltd. Division in Ontario, Canada, where he held positions of increasing responsibility.
 In 1957, Rhame transferred to the corporation's Central Office in Detroit with the Financial Staff's operations analysis section and was promoted to that section's director in 1966. In 1968, he was promoted to assistant comptroller of General Motors Corporation.
 In 1969, Rhame transferred to the General Motors Overseas Operations division as assistant to the managing director of Vauxhall Motors Limited in the United Kingdom. In 1971, he was named manager of General Motors Austria Ges.m.b.H. in Vienna, and in 1974, he was appointed managing director of General Motors South African (Pty.) Limited in Port Elizabeth.
 In 1975, Rhame moved to Adam Opel AG, in Russelsheim, Germany, as director of finance, and five years later was named executive director of finance and administration for GM Passenger Cars - Europe, located at Adam Opel. On March 6, 1984, Rhame was elected comptroller of General Motors Corporation, the position he held until his current assignment.
 Upon the retirement of Rhame, the operations previously managed by him, International Export Sales and African Operations/New Business Development, will report directly to Smith.
