Alicia Boler-Davis will be coming to mid-Michigan to be the newest plant manager for GM's Lansing Region. The region includes both the Grand River and Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plants.
Currently, Ms. Boler-Davis is plant manager at GM's Arlington, Texas Assembly Plant. That appointment made her the first African-American woman to be appointed to plant manager at a GM vehicle manufacturing plant.
Boler-Davis has been with GM since 1994. She holds a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Northwestern University and a master's degree in Engineering from Ressaelaer Polytechnic Institute.
She will be replacing Randy Thayer, who announced his retirement last week. Thayer is a mid-Michigan native who was made plant manager for Lansing Delta Township Assembly in July, 2003 and got the plant into production. Then he was named manager of Lansing Region last year.
The changes will take effect October 1.
