The Henry Ford Museum has a new face for its board of trustees. The Detroit News reports Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, has joined the board of trustees to serve alongside 20 other business leaders.
Reuss is the first GM employee to serve on the board for The Henry Ford, which includes the museum and Greenfield Village.
“As a lifelong Detroiter, I know exactly how important The Henry Ford is to our community, and beyond,” Reuss said in a statement. “It’s a national treasure. I couldn’t be happier to join its board of trustees and do what I can to help it continue to preserve, archive and encourage American innovation.”
Reuss’ latest addition to his work life will join his contributions as vice chairman of the GM Foundation, and serving on the Detroit Workforce Development Board.
