GM Shakes Up Europe Again

Late last week, General Motors (NYSE: GM  ) announced that its chief of Chevy and Cadillac sales in Europe, Susan Docherty, will be leaving the company to spend more time with her family. That might well be true -- but it's also true that Chevy sales in Europe have fallen off a cliff in recent months.

All automakers are struggling in Europe, where deep recessions have hammered new-car sales. But GM is suffering more than most, and CEO Dan Akerson has been determined to turn that around. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at Docherty's departure in context -- and at what GM will have to do to get things turned around in troubled Europe.

Few companies provoke such strong feelings as General Motors, but ignoring emotions to make good investing decisions is a critical skill.
