General Motors has appointed Pamela Fletcher, who launched the Chevrolet Bolt EV to the newly-created position of vice president, Global Electric Vehicle Programmes.

In the new role, Fletcher will lead the vehicle programme execution for GM's entire global electric vehicle portfolio, including the commitment to launch more than 20 all-electric vehicles globally by 2023. She will report to Doug Parks, vice president, Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programmes.

"Nobody is more prepared to help us lead the way to a zero emissions future than Pam Fletcher," said Parks. "Under Pam's leadership, GM will continue to deliver electric vehicles that delight our customers and exceed their expectations."

For more than a decade, Fletcher has been in leadership roles supporting the engineering of GM's electric vehicle and self-driving technologies, most recently as executive chief engineer for Electrified Vehicles and New Technologies.

She has led the teams responsible for development of several GM vehicles, including the second-generation Chevrolet Volt, Chevrolet Spark EV, Cadillac ELR and the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Her team also led development of Super Cruise, the hands-free highway driver assist system.
