General Motors Corp. shifted several key financial executives to new jobs Monday, promoting a woman to the job of treasurer.

Heidi Kunz, 38, assistant treasurer and former treasurer of GM of Canada Ltd., will succeed Charles Golden. She was also named secretary of the board of directors' nominating committee. Spokesmen said they believe Kunz to be the auto maker's first woman treasurer.

Golden, 46, was named GM vice president and managing director of Vauxhall Motors Ltd., based in Luton, England. Vauxhall is GM's vehicle sold in Britain. Golden previously handled a variety of assignments in the treasurer's office in New York, at Detroit headquarters and in the former GM assembly and Fisher body divisions.

The current Vauxhall managing director, William Ebbert, 50, was named to a new position, president of GM's Automotive Components Group Asia/Pacific operations, based in Toyko.
