Rick Kewley, formerly executive director of global product development quality at General Motors, has elevated to the position of executive chief engineer within the company's defense subsidiary.

He will oversee GM Defense's engineering and program implementation functions and lead its efforts to help customers address integrated vehicle, autonomy, mobility, power and propulsion requirements, the company said Wednesday.

Kewley will supervise an organization that engineers infantry squad vehicles for the U.S. Army as part of a $222.9 million award in 2020.

The U.S. Military Academy graduate served in the Army before he joined General Motors in 1994.

“As an Army veteran myself, I understand the value that technology and cutting-edge capability can offer to our military and government customers alike," Kewley said.
