Roger B. Smith

January 1, 2019

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer General Motors Corporation (Retired) (Deceased) – Detroit, Michigan

Roger B. Smith’s strong background in financial matters coupled with a dedicated sense of fiscal responsibility have been apparent from his early days with General Motors Corporation. Starting as a general accounting senior clerk, he rose through the fiscal ranks of the corporation to become its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer on January 1, 1981. Throughout Mr. Smith’s corporate career he was given additional areas of responsibility outside the normal financial realm, such as Consumer Relations and Service, Environmental Activities, Industrial Relations, Marketing and Personnel Administration and Development. Originator of the General Motors Cancer Research Foundation in 1978, he continues to chair the foundation and oversee its administration. Actively involved in higher education and his local community, Roger Smith brings immense managerial and fiscal expertise to both. He is a member of the President’s National Productivity Advisory Committee and is the National Chairman for the 1984 U.S. Savings Bonds Volunteer Committee. “Organizations like General Motors need Northwood’s approach with their graduates so that our free enterprise system remains strong and vibrant.”
