General Motors CFO Chris Liddell has suddenly stepped down, saying he will leave the company April 1.
On a conference call with reporters, Liddell said he saw completing the IPO as his principal task at GM. He said he made the decision to leave in the past week. He said he is not sure of his future plans, but noted, "I don't want to be another CFO. I think my CFO days might be behind me the first of April.
"I have a number of interesting ideas, in the back of my mind, but none of them as CFO," Liddell said.
Liddell joined GM in January 2010.
"Chris was a major contributor during a pivotal time in the company history," said CEO Dan Akerson, in a prepared statement.
Treasurer Dan Ammann will replace Liddell.
