Mary Barra Becomes the Most Powerful Woman in the Auto Industry - Ever
When Mary Barra takes over as the Chief Executive Officer of General Motors on January 15th 2014, the world will meet the first ever female CEO of a major automaker and as she steps into Akerson’s position of CEO, everyone else at the massive automaker will answer to Barra. This will make Barra the most powerful woman in the history of the auto industry and realistically, as the head of one of the largest automakers in the world, Barra will be one of the most powerful people in the industry – male or female. I would go so far as to say that Barra will be the most powerful woman on Earth outside of the crooked world of politics. After all, Barra will be THE BOSS of one of the largest corporations in the world and that is something that few other women can say.
