Mark L. Reuss is the current President of General Motors North America.[1] In 2001 he was appointed executive director of the Performance Division, then executive director of Global Vehicle Integration, Safety and Virtual Development in 2005.

Later he served as chairman and managing director of Holden, the Australasian General Motors (GM) operation from February 1, 2008 until September 1, 2009, overseeing GM's Australasian operations and is a director on the GM Asia Pacific Strategy Board.[2][3]

Reuss was the vehicle line executive in charge of the highly criticized and unsuccessful Pontiac Aztek and Buick Rendezvous. However, he was praised for his tenure in the early 2010s for leading product development.

From September 1, 2009, Alan Batey took over his position as Reuss returned to the GM in the United States as a senior product development director.

Mark's father was Lloyd E. Reuss, former president at GM from 1990 to 1992. He received an undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University in 1986 and an MBA from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business in 1990.
