Jami Miscik was recently appointed to GM’s board of directors

General Motors brought gender equity back to its board of directors earlier this month by enlisting the services of Jami Miscik.

Miscik is the former deputy director of intelligence for the CIA. Currently, she serves as the CEO and vice chair of the international consulting firm Kissinger Associates.

“Jami is a seasoned leader with experience in assessing the geopolitical and macroeconomic climate,” said GM CEO and Chairman Mary Barra. “Her unique and extensive background in intelligence, security, and risk analysis and mitigation will add significant insights to GM’s board and the company’s overall strategy.”

GM’s board first achieved balance in 2016. That accomplishment was a major factor in a recent report by Equileap that ranked GM as the top company in the world for gender equity.

The election of eBay CEO Devin Wenig in May put the board’s number at six men and five women, so Miscik’s arrival restores the previous balance.

Miscik brings with her an extensive background in business and international affairs. She is also a board member with Morgan Stanley and serves as the co-vice chair for the Council on Foreign Relations. She has worked at Kissinger Associates since 2009 and also boasts stints with Barclays Capital and Lehman Brothers on her resume. In addition to Miscik’s service with the CIA, she also served on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.

In addition to Barra, Miscik, and Wening, GM’s other board members are Linda Gooden, Jane Mendillo, Patricia Russo, Carol Stephenson, Joseph Jimenez, Michael Mullen, James Mulva, Thomas Schoewe, and Theodore Solso.
