DETROIT - General Motors is replacing its chiefs of communications and human resources.

The company says communications head Selim Bingol and human resources chief Melissa Howell are leaving GM to pursue other interests.

GM named John Quattrone to replace Howell. No replacement has been named for Bingol.

The company is struggling with a series of embarrassing recalls, including 2.6 million small cars worldwide due to a faulty ignition switches. GM says at least 13 deaths have been linked to the ignition switch problem. Family members of those killed say the death toll is much higher.
