Phoebe Wall Howard Detroit Free Press Published 10:38 p.m. UTC Jul 13, 2018 Denise Gray arrived at Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant in Livonia, along with nearly three dozen clients and employees, for her business dinner. A well-dressed man she didn't know took her aside and expressed concern about the evening's corporate host, a Korean battery company that recently made leadership changes. Minutes later, she noticed a horrified look on the customer's face when she introduced herself as the company's president. The man realized Gray was the leadership of LG Chem's Michigan Inc. tech center. "It's just being a female in a male-dominated industry," Gray said. "People expect the CEO to be male or Korean or I don't know. Just not me." The little girl raised at Shady Grove Missionary Baptist Church on the corner of McDougall and Charlevoix in Detroit, grew up to be one of the world’s most respected electrical engineers who … [Read more...] about A daughter of Detroit defies odds, takes car industry into the future

Over lunch years ago, a man who ran a successful marijuana business in California complained to his friend Arnold Heckman about how hard it was to find the right packaging materials.Heckman thought the answer was simple: “It seems like you could just go offshore and have what you want made.”His friend replied: “Why don’t you go offshore and have what I want made, and I’ll buy it from you?”That conversation years ago was the beginnings of Cannaline, which sells custom bags and jars and other containers from its Elkridge headquarters to marijuana retailers in states where the drug is legal.Now Heckman is poised to take advantage of business in his own backyard.Maryland is licensing 15 growers, 15 processors and 102 dispensaries for the launch of the medical marijuana industry.

Not just about dreadful sexual behaviour at the BBC and Hollywood – now we’re reading about serious bullying and rapists at Westminster, in schools and in sport. Take the time to talk to females in other business areas and you’ll find that female harassment and worse comes in all shapes and sizes. In short it is alive and well in places near us all. Just scratch the surface and, given time, you’ll find a lack of gender respect and worse. It’s all very worrying. Will we find sexual misconduct specifically within the motor industry I wonder? As a male dominated industry that is a long way short of being squeaky clean in other areas, I’d be very surprised if this wasn’t the case here but where would we go to check and see? For example, where would motor industry ‘victims’ go (other than to the Police or media) and what are the lessons we could learn here? Inappropriate sexual harassment, bullying and assault Nobody will have sympathy … [Read more...] about The motor industry and sexual harassment
The Trump Effect is surrounding us again. This time it’s in the form of stiff tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. And the imminent tariffs are upsetting stock markets, according to the New York Times, with the prospect of a global trade fight around the proverbial corner. US President Trump’s announcement, which came during an insider meeting with industry executives, seeks to impose tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum. The debate escalated as Trump declared he would consider a tax on imported cars if European leaders increased tariffs on US goods. Reports from the Wall Street Journal have it that Trump’s pro-trade advisers are against the tariffs and are stunned. Let’s use this edition of the “Gas2 Week in Review” to trace this most recent iteration of the Trump Effect on the US and the reaction of the marketplace, especially that of global auto and parts manufacturers. In what is increasingly a digital US … [Read more...] about The Trump Effect on the Auto Industry (#Gas2WeekinReview)
