ExxonMobil said that Dan Ammann, former General Motors President and CEO of Cruise autonomous vehicle company, has been appointed President of ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions, effective May 1. Ammann replaces Joe Blommaert, who has elected to retire after 35 years of service.

 “We welcome Dan to ExxonMobil and will use his knowledge and experience to continue to build our Low Carbon Solutions business,” said Darren Woods, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “I thank Joe for his contributions to the company’s success and the significant progress made in developing our lower-emissions business. I wish Joe all the best in retirement.”

Ammann was named CEO of Cruise, which is majority-owned by GM, in 2018, and was appointed president of GM in 2014. He was previously GM’s CFO and joined GM as Treasurer in 2010. He helped lead GM's initial public offering following the company’s 2009 restructuring.

Blommaert, who has been president of Low Carbon Solutions since its creation in 2021, joined ExxonMobil Chemical in 1988 as a process engineer at the Rozenburg chemical plant in the Netherlands. Following assignments in the Netherlands, Belgium, and the United States, Blommaert was appointed regional director for Europe and Asia Pacific chemical operations in 2014 and became senior vice president of global operations for the Chemical business in 2019.
