“My American Success Story:
Always the First, Never the Last”
“My American Success Story: Always the First, Never the Last” is the autobiography of Roy Roberts, who became the highest ranking African American executive in the history of General Motors Corporation and the global auto industry.
Roberts transformed GM plants, merged its Pontiac and GMC divisions, and coined the term “right-sizing” during a critical period of upheaval and transformation for the U.S. auto industry.
My American Success Story chronicles Roberts’ spectacular corporate career, community involvement (including his 2011-2013 role as emergency manager of Detroit Public Schools) and fulfilling personal life, highlighted by his 40-year marriage to Maureen, his wife.
A consistent theme of Roberts’ story is his determination to share success by opening doors for others. As he puts it: “It’s not a sin to be the first; it’s a sin to be the last.”
