About Glenn Stevens Jr.
Executive Director, MICHauto; Vice President of Automotive and Mobility Initiatives, Detroit Regional Chamber
As a volunteer in 2006, Glenn Stevens Jr. worked with industry colleagues to write the business plan for MICHauto, a nonprofit launched in 2007 to grow Michigan’s auto industry. Stevens, who became executive director in 2014, collaborates with OEMs, suppliers, colleges and universities, state agencies and others to work toward that goal.
In 2015, Stevens led the creation of the Michigan Mobility Initiative, an alliance between MICHauto, the Michigan Department of Transportation, Michigan Economic Development Corp. and others to prepare Michigan for electrification, autonomy, mobility and connected vehicles. In 2016, he co-founded the Detroit Mobility Coalition, which leads the Michigan High-Tech Talent initiative and partners in MiREV.
“Glenn is a champion and leader of the EV revolution — a connector of people, a builder of coalitions, a strategist and dot connector who whispers revelations to business executives, journalists and other influencers critical to Michigan’s quest to lead the new era of mobility,” said Ron Fournier, president of Truscott-Rossman.
