Julia Steyn, the head of General Motors‘ car-sharing service, will leave the company, Automotive News reported Monday.

GM did not immediately confirm or comment on the news. According to Automotive News, Steyn, a GM vice-president, is finalizing her separation terms.

In 2018, Maven unveiled a service that enabled customers who own or lease GM vehicle to offer their cars for short-term rentals.

GM has been undergoing a modest management reorganization. The head of its Cadillac division, Johan De Nysschen, stepped down last year. Also in late 2018, former President Dan Ammann became CEO of GM’s Cruise self-driving division. Vice-president and product czar Mark Reuss then took over the president position.

CEO Mary Barra has been in the process of positioning GM for a future in which autonomous and electric vehicles will be a bigger business, and when customers may no longer fall into the traditional ownership model.
