Dan Akerson would prefer that somebody within GM (GM) follows him as CEO, he tells the WSJ, although he declines to discuss the timing of his own departure. Akerson feels the carmaker has made much progress over the past 2-3 years but has more to do. "We aren't great yet, but we are on a path." He's also cautiously optimistic that Opel will break even by mid-decade.
