WSJ: GE Capital’s Neal Expected to Step Down

The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that General Electric is evaluating potential successors to GE Capital chief Michael A. Neal, as the conglomerate prepares for a change at the top of what would by itself be the country’s fifth-largest commercial bank.

The Journal said that Neal, who has held the position of chairman and chief executive of GE Capital for eight years, is expected to step down as early as this summer.

The Journal notes that the move will be the first major leadership transition at GE Capital since the financial crisis upended its business and is another signal that the finance operation is now on more stable footing.
