General Motors seeks new HR chief at a time when the company is in a ‘war for talent’

General Motors is in the market for someone to lead its global human resources office.

Jose Tomas, who was with the Detroit automaker for eight months, told the Free Press on Monday he is planning to pursue “a new business venture” but did not disclose what that will entail. His last day was Wednesday.

GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said it’s not clear how long it will take the company to fill Tomas’ position. In finding Tomas’ replacement, GM will need to look for someone who can manage an increasingly crucial part of company operations, according to Michelle Krebs, executive analyst for Autotrader.
