GM NAMES PRESIDENT OF GM EUROPE

 GM NAMES PRESIDENT OF GM EUROPE
 DETROIT, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Louis R. Hughes has been elected a


vice president and group executive of General Motors (NYSE: GM), and named president of General Motors Europe, according to Robert C. Stempel, chairman of the GM Board of Directors. He will assume his new post immediately, but continue in a dual capacity as president of GM Europe and chairman and managing director of Adam Opel AG, the General Motors subsidiary in Germany, until a successor at Opel is elected.
 "Lou was a logical choice for the top job in Europe," Stempel said, "because of his international management experience on two continents, and his continuing leadership of the highly successful team at Opel." During the past three years, Adam Opel AG has achieved record levels of production, sales and profitability.
 Hughes, 43, joined GM in 1966 as a mechanical engineering student at General Motors Institute. He continued his education, receiving an MBA from Harvard, and joined the GM Treasurer's Office in New York in 1973. In 1983 he was promoted to assistant treasurer with general overall responsibility for international activities.
 In 1985 he transferred to Canada as vice president of finance and a member of the Board of Directors of GM of Canada. Two years later he moved to GM Europe headquarters in Zurich as vice president of finance. He was named to his present post at Opel in 1989, and was elected a vice president of General Motors earlier this year.
