ECEMBER 15, 2015 - The Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MHCC) would like to salute Grace Lieblein, Vice President of Global Quality, General Motors, who will retire at the end of this month.
Lieblein, 55, is one of GM’s highest-ranking women and a close confidant of CEO Mary Barra, having risen through the company’s engineering ranks together. The MHCC had the privilege of working with Grace Lieblein, through GM's Supplier Diversity Team, from 2013 and most of 2014 when she was in charge of GM’s massive purchasing division, which buys nearly $100 billion worth of parts and materials annually.
Lieblein grew up in Los Angeles and is GM’s highest-ranking Hispanic woman -- her father was from Cuba and her mother from Nicaragua. She was the first woman to run GM Mexico, a post she held from 2009 to 2011. After that she ran GM’s operations in Brazil, one of the automaker’s largest markets.
Last month, Lieblein was named for the third time to Automotive News’ list of 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry. She was also on Fortune magazine’s list of the 10 Most Powerful Women in Automotive in 2013. To read more about Grace Lieblein, please click on Crain's Detroit Business.
