General Motors Co. has appointed Pamela Fletcher, who led the team that successfully launched the Chevrolet Bolt EV, to the newly created position of vice president of global electric vehicle (EV) programs.
In this new role, Fletcher will lead the vehicle program execution for GM’s entire global EV portfolio, including the recently announced commitment to launch more than 20 all-electric vehicles globally by 2023. She will report to Doug Parks, vice president of autonomous and EV programs.
“Nobody is more prepared to help us lead the way to a zero-emissions future than Pam Fletcher,” says Parks. “Under Pam’s leadership, GM will continue to deliver electric vehicles that delight our customers and exceed their expectations.”
For more than a decade, Fletcher has been in leadership roles supporting the engineering of GM’s EV and self-driving technologies, most recently as executive chief engineer for electrified vehicles and new technologies. She has led the teams responsible for development of several of GM’s most awarded vehicles, including the second-generation Chevrolet Volt, Chevrolet Spark EV, Cadillac ELR and the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Her team also led development of Super Cruise, a hands-free highway driver assist system.
