American OEM General Motors has appointed Pamela Fletcher as vice president of Global Electric Vehicle Programs after she led the Chevrolet Bolt EV launch team and developed plans for the company’s zero-emissions future.
In the new role, Fletcher will lead vehicle program execution for the OEM’s entire EV portfolio, including the 20 all-electric vehicles that will be released globally by 2023.
As part of the company for more than 10 years, Fletcher has played a key role in GMs electrified vision for the future, leading the development teams for the Cadillac ELR, the Chevrolet Spark EV as well as the Bolt EV, and pioneering the introduction of the Super Cruise hands-free driver assist system.
Doug Parks, VP of Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programs at GM, is optimistic about the appointment: “Nobody is more prepared to help us lead the way to a zero emissions future than Pam Fletcher. Under Pam’s leadership, GM will continue to deliver electric vehicles that delight our customers and exceed their expectations.”
