Third of four Information Technology Innovation Centers will employ about 1,000

ROSWELL, GA--Jan. 10, 2013: General Motors will hire approximately 1,000 high-tech workers to staff a new Information Technology Innovation Center near Atlanta. The automaker needs software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other IT professionals for the third of four centers in the United States.

"Locating this center in Atlanta makes good business sense," said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. "We can draw from a deep pool of high tech expertise through the surrounding colleges, universities and talent residing in the area."

GM already has hired more than 700 IT specialists to work at the Innovation Centers in Austin, Tex., and Warren, Mich. Response in the market has been strong as three of four candidates offered jobs to date have accepted them.

The Atlanta Innovation Center will be located in Roswell, a northern suburb of Atlanta.

"This Innovation Center is exactly the kind of employer we want in the state," said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. "The information age will be with us for a long time, and attracting companies such as GM that are on the cutting edge of manufacturing and technology is a huge win for Georgia."

Mott is leading a rebalancing of information technology at GM under which the majority of IT work will be done by GM employees instead of being outsourced, which has been the GM model for most of the last three decades.

"We look to the Innovation Centers to design and deliver IT that drives down the cost of ongoing operations while continuously increasing the level and speed at which innovative products and services are available to GM customers," Mott said. "The IT Innovation Centers are critical to our overall GM business strategy and IT transformation."

The location of the fourth site will be announced at a later date.

General Motors Co. and its partners produce vehicles in 30 countries, and the company has leadership positions in the world's largest and fastest-growing automotive markets.  GM's brands include Chevrolet and Cadillac, as well as Baojun, Buick, GMC, Holden, Isuzu, Jiefang, Opel, Vauxhall and Wuling.
