My favorite videos of GM’s Ed Welburn

Welburn is relinquishing the chief designer status of ten GM design centers in seven countries. Welburn always said to me, “talk to the young designers” and we have talked to them, but in this video, we are talking to Welburn about those young designers. What kind of indelible mark are they leaving on General Motors and Welburn? What kind of indelible mark is Welburn leaving on them? Welburn holds the highest-ranking position as an African American in General Motors. His team is made up of a global mixture of people, with the one defining mission to create the best vehicle design in the auto industry.

Whether it is a Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Opel or Chevy Welburn and his young group of professional designers are reshaping General Motor company’s vehicle designs and fortunes from the beginning of the post-bailout way into the future of GM.
