Alicia Boler-Davis started at General Motors as a manufacturing engineer and soon became the first black woman to become a plant manager there.
She has also served as Senior Vice President of Customer Experience. She noted, “There were not a lot of people who looked like me, but that didn’t mean I couldn’t do it.”
Ms. Davis was promoted to Executive VP of Global Manufacturing at GM in 2013.
Her many accomplishments include being named Black Engineer of the Year by US Black Engineer Magazine, Technologist of the Year by Women of Color Magazine, and championing and mentoring women in the automotive industry.
