Ferrum College will welcome E. Michael Mutchler, a former General Motors executive
to campus on Wednesday, September 23rd to kick off the Executive in Residence program,
a new program designed to bring top business executives to campus. Each academic year,
four distinguished and influential business leaders will be invited to share their
experiences, skills and “real-world” business expertise.
E. Michael Mutchler retired from General Motors Corp. (GM) after more than four decades
of service. He served as Vice President and Group Executive in charge of GM’s North
American Operations Powertrain Group and as a member of both GM’s North American Strategy
Board and the GM International Strategy Board.

sessions, one in the afternoon, the other in the evening. Evening sessions will be
held at 7 p.m. in the Blue Ridge Mountain Room in Franklin Hall. It is free and open
to the public. In addition to the lecture sessions, executives will also visit with
students during classes and dinners. Select groups of students, such as some members
of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), as well as some Bonner Scholars will be invited
to attend private receptions with each guest.
