GM’s Chief Engineer of Full Size Trucks is a Woman!
Introducing Jully Burau, GM’s Chief Engineer of light-duty and heavy-duty pickup trucks. Jully was hired as a crash test engineer for Buick in 1980, and joined full-size trucks as Chief Engineer in 2001, where she has played a large part in working to refine the quietness of the all-new GMC Sierra, as well as its handling, steering, and braking capabilities.
Women represent half the workforce in the U.S., but fill fewer than a quarter of the jobs in traditional STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — fields. Encouraged by her father who was a district service manager for Buick Motor Division and very passionate about the automotive industry, Jully has become an automotive STEM success story for all women! Jully is speaking this week at the U.S. News STEM Solution National Conference designed to get more young women into the those fields.
Join Jully in the cabin of the all-new GMC Sierra in this YouTube video, where she discusses the reveal of the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra to media on a recent “Glamping” trip. Want to know more about “Glamping”? Then check out Sue Mead’s recent story on the GMC Sierra media ride and drive at AskPatty!
