She previously had been vice president of global human resources; vice president of global manufacturing engineering; plant manager of Detroit Hamtramck assembly; and in several other executive, engineering, and staff positions.

Barra began her career with GM in 1980 as a General Motors Institute (Kettering University) co-op student at the Pontiac Motor Division.

Barra is also chair of the Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of America’s leading companies, and she serves on the board of directors of the Walt Disney Company, the Duke University board of trustees, and the Detroit Economic Club.
