General Motors has filled its newly created position of Vice President of Global Electric Vehicle Programs with a familiar face. Pam Fletcher has been tapped to take the role after successfully leading the Chevrolet Bolt EV team up to the electric car’s launch.
Fletcher will lead GM’s entire vehicle program execution through 2023. The automaker recently said it plans for two new electric cars in the next 18 months and 20 new electric vehicles by 2023. The launch of these vehicles will be Fletcher’s responsibility. She will report to Doug Parks, vice president, Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programs.
“Nobody is more prepared to help us lead the way to a zero emissions future than Pam Fletcher,” Parks said. “Under Pam’s leadership, GM will continue to deliver electric vehicles that delight our customers and exceed their expectations.”
Fletcher was most recently executive chief engineer for Electrified Vehicles and New Technologies and has been a part of numerous electric and autonomous driving programs. Notably, she led teams for the Chevrolet Volt, Chevrolet Spark EV, Cadillac ELR and led the development of Super Cruise.
