"Susan is more than capable of doing the job," said Mark LaNeve, a mentor of Ms. Docherty's who left GM in October and is now CMO at Allstate. The position "is a very big job and it's a lot easier when the market is good than when the market is bad."

In fact, Ms. Docherty will oversee a trimmed down but still huge budget at GM, which spent $1.15 billion in U.S. measured media in the first nine months of 2009, according to TNS Media Intelligence.
