Michael F. Ableson
Vice President, Electric Vehicle Charging & Infrastructure
General Motors Company
Mike Ableson joined General Motors in 1984 for a chance to influence a future that books hadn’t yet predicted. Today, Mr. Ableson is doing just that by making GM’s all-electric future possible.
In this role, he is responsible for developing the partnerships, incentives and investments needed to create the necessary electric vehicle charging infrastructure that will remove a critical barrier to acceptance of electrification.
Prior to this role, Mr. Ableson was GM’s Vice President of Global Strategy where he led a strategy team focused on the next chapter of GM’s story covering connected vehicles, urban mobility and autonomous vehicles. The freedom to think and create globally across all forms of transportation has allowed him to inform congress on how to deploy self-driving vehicles via testimony on Capitol Hill and present solutions for tomorrow’s cities on a global stage with CityLab.
