ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp., a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles revolutionizing the urban driving experience, today announced substantial leadership and operating changes to accelerate its transition to onshore manufacturing and commercialization of its unique horizontal market.
Susan Docherty, a proven CEO, executive and board member with three-plus decades of experience driving growth, transforming brands and defining markets – including more than 25 years at General Motors – assumes both the CEO and Interim COO roles, effective immediately.
