General Motors has hired an outside crisis manager, Jeff Eller, to deal with the company's response over its ignition switch recall, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Eller is the third high level outsider hired by the company which earlier in the week announced Kenneth Feinberg would help GM with a financial response to victims while Chicago attorney Anton Valukas is handling an internal investigation into how the company mishandled the recall.

The WSJ also reported GM had submitted 200,000 pages of records and answered more than 67% of questions from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the recall.

The deadline for that information to be submitted was Thursday, but had been extended.

GM Chief Executive Mary Barra appeared before a Congressional committee in Washington this week to answer questions from senators over the recall.
