A General Motors executive instrumental in securing his company's foot-hold in Mid-Michigan returned to Lansing on Tuesday.

Mark Reuss is an executive vice president responsible for Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain.

He oversees design, engineering, program management, safety, and quality of GM's cars and trucks.

He was speaking to the Chamber of Commerce's Economic Club, and later he talked about why GM decided to bring the Camaro from Canada to Lansing.

Ruess said, "If we're not making quality vehicles for ATS and CTS, the plant would not have been considered, but we do. We make great products here, the quality is extremely high so it's a good and for good reasons."

Ruess says self driving cars are going to play a big role in GM's future.
