Leading the Charge for Military Mobility

Attention: Gear heads, military service members, public servants and curious entrepreneurs. We have an episode of "Tartan Talks" for you. Angela Ambrose, 2002 graduate of Edinboro University and VP of Government Relations and Communications for GM Defense joins us to chat about the new Infantry Squad Vehicle – which is set to roll out soon. GM Defense LLC, a subsidiary of General Motors, is celebrating the first delivery of the Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) – a light and agile all-terrain troop carrier intended to transport a nine-Soldier infantry squad and their equipment. Ambrose chats with us about more than just the vehicle's 186-horsepower, 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission. Much more than its prototype – the 2020 Chevy Colorado. She digs into how she landed the role with GM Defense and how she used her education and experience from Edinboro to check off her career milestones. And, yes, what it feels like to drive (and be an anxious passenger in) the ISV.
