Mary Barra, 53, is the first female CEO of General Motors, drives for her mom, Eva, who fought breast cancer twice but passed away in 2004. Barra started at GM 33 years ago as a college intern and worked her way up through the company’s manufacturing and product development operations, with brief stints in human resources to help GM through rough patches with employees.
Barra gives her mom a lot of credit for her success, saying she insisted that Barra go to college. Because of her strong background in math and science, Barre pursued an electrical engineering degree. She continued her education at Stanford, earning an MBA.
