GM expands board to 13 with Meg Whitman and NBA’s Mark Tatum

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors has expanded its board of directors to 13, appointing former Hewlett-Packard chief Meg Whitman and NBA executive Mark Tatum. Seven of GM’s directors are now women, including board chair and Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra, who in 2014 became the first woman to lead a major U.S. automaker. The 64-year-old Whitman, who also previously led eBay and the short-lived video app Quibi, joins GM as the 112-year-old company pushes heavily into the electric car market in the midst of remaking its image as clean vehicle company. Tatum, 51, is NBA’s deputy commissioner.
