GMAC may be close to naming a chief financial officer and has considered appointing Barbara Yastine, the former CFO for investment banking at Credit Suisse Group and Citigroup, according to a report by Bloomberg.

The news service cited "three people with knowledge of the search" but a GMAC spokesman called the story "speculative," adding that it is not making "any management announcements at this time.

Jim Mackey continues to serve as interim CFO, and the company continues to move forward with its strategic priorities."

Yastine, 50, is considered a prospect because she worked at Citigroup with Michael Carpenter, GMAC's new chief executive.

GMAC and its mortgage affiliate both posted a profit in the first quarter. The company is considering its options on Residential Capital Corp., including a possible sale of stock to the public.
