An accountant by training, Donner was recognized as one of the sharpest financial minds in business. His overwhelming command of the financial aspects of running GM led him to set new records for sales, profitability, and dividend payments. He is principally credited with building General Motors into the largest industrial corporation in the world during his tenure.
