In an industry where new jobs are being created every day, could this be the C-Suite role of the future?
Michigan's Governor signed an executive measure this week creating an Office of Future Mobility and Electrification and, with it, the creation of a new 'Chief Mobility Officer' role.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer set out her vision for securing Michigan's continued global leadership in both the automotive manufacturing and mobility sectors in remarks delivered at the 2020 MICHAuto Summit in Detroit.
The governor has signed two measures - one creating the Michigan Office of Future Mobility and Electrification and the designation of a Chief Mobility Officer to head the office, and a second creating the Michigan Council on Future Mobility and Electrification.
“In the state that put the world on wheels and that’s home to some of the most innovative, driven workers on the planet, we must continue to work to solidify Michigan as a global leader in mobility,” said Whitmer.
“That’s why we’re harnessing our resources in state government to ensure Michigan remains the go-to state to build, test, and deploy the cars of the future. I’m excited to work with leaders in the Office of Future Mobility to build on the progress we’ve seen in the last year and cement our status as a hub for innovation and opportunity in the automotive sector.”
