GM Taps First Women as Product Development Chief

In an industry which has long been controlled by male executives, product development has been a particularly male-dominated domain.  However, General Motors has promoted Mary Barra as its new head of product development, the first woman to hold that key position at a major automaker.

Barra, 49, will oversee 36,000 engineers, designers and other staff at GM locations around the globe. She comes to the job with an engineering background, having served as vice president of GM’s global manufacturing engineering in the past, as well as having experience as a plant manager and in internal communications at the company.
