General Motors announced on Monday that it is opening a new Information Technology Innovation Center in Warren, Michigan, that will eventually employ 1,500 workers. The move is part of GM's new initiative to bring IT functions back in-house.
The Warren facility is the latest of four new Innovation Centers planned for the United States. GM opened its first IT center in Austin last month creating 500 new jobs.
“We’re currently seeking the next generation of game-changers to help us usher in a new age of automotive innovation at GM,” said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott.
GM says the new Innovation Centers will help the company with its overall IT business strategy. The centers will be charged with improving company performance, cutting costs and increasing the “level of innovation delivered to GM customers.”
GM has yet to announce the locations of the other two Innovation Centers.
