Marcey Kewish, GMC Product Development Engineer on Chassis Control, is proud to have grow up in the Michigan Automotive Industry with a mechanic father who worked in a machine shop. After Marcey graduated from the University of Michigan she already knew she wanted to carry on the tradition and work in the automotive industry. Currently she is going back to school to get her masters and has to balance work life, personal life, and school life which exhibits the qualities of what it takes to be Professional Grade. This drive for achievement carries over in her work at GMC. She is proud to be responsible for the "button on the dashboard with the squiggly lines". This button, for the Stabilitrak system, she develops for full size heavy duty trucks and vans. At the GM Proving Grounds she attempts to replicate driving situations that require Stabilitrak, such as a truck and trailer going into a jackknife, similar to a guy who would be hauling a fifth wheel camper on vacation. Her focus on achieving great things contributes to GMC's dedication to build the world's best vehicles.

Professional Grade Profiles | The People Behind GMC
Ken Wasmer, GMC Brake Engineer, is an avid smoker of fish and jerky. He
approaches both his work and personal life with the Professional Grade
attitude of an engineer. His methodology to smoking food is using objective
data of measuring temperatures and air flow alongside subjective data like
how good a piece of meat tastes. At the Milford Proving Grounds he
translates this engineering mentality into his professional role when doing
ABS Brake Testing on the GMC Terrain Smaller SUV. Ken is also happy to
bring his work and personal life together and sharing the smoked meat he
makes when getting up at 4am. It is a great feeling of satisfaction to
bring all his coworkers together and share in his smoked jerky at work.
