Engineer Executive

Watch Christine Barman, Vehicle Line Executive at Chrysler, describe the adrenaline rush of testing the Jeep Cherokee off road on tough, steep mountain tracks like “Poison Spider” in Moab, UT. She first developed her ability to figure out how machinery works growing up on a farm in Indiana and went on to earn her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering, along with an MBA. She encourages involvement in Girl Scouts, Four H, and sports as a great way to develop leadership skills that are needed to be a senior automotive executive.
