LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Not one, but two former Lubbock residents are now at the top leadership of General Motors.

Former Texas Tech Chancellor John Montford joins Chairman and interim C.E.O. Ed Whitacre. Montford will take on lobbying duties according to media accounts including the Dallas Morning News.

As G.M. tries to re-make itself this won't be Montford's first brush with major reform. As a former State Senator from Lubbock, Montford had a hand in water and insurance reforms. He comes to G.M. from AT&T.
