GM PR boss Steve Harris (along with R&D boss Larry Burns) has announced his resignation from his second stint as the top communications man for the General. One anonymous PR staffer asked to comment said: "Took his ass long enough."

We're told Harris will be replaced by Chris Preuss, currently in charge of GM Europe communications. We've had a very positive working relationship with Preuss, so we here at Jalopnik are happy to see this change. I mean, it's not like we were real positive about Harris' recent PR decisions.

Burns will be replaced by Alan Taub, currently executive director of R&D. [Automotive News]
