Who's Where: Dagoberto Tribia promoted to Director of Interior Design at GM Brazil Design

Wed, 23 Feb 2011

Dagoberto Tribia was promoted to Director of Interior Design at GM do Brasil Design on January 1, 2011.

Working under the direction of Carlos Barba, Executive Director of Design, GM South America, Tribia has assumed responsibility for all interior programs at General Motors Brazil Design, both local and global. In doing so, he has also become the first Brazilian Design Director at the company.

Tribia began his career at General Motors Brazil Design in July 2006 as a Design Supervisor, and in October 2007 he was appointed to the position of Design Manager, a role he held at the company until his promotion to head the Interior Design team. He has played a critical role in raising the standard of all interior programs at General Motors Brazil Design.

In addition to successfully managing the interior development of Chevrolet's emerging market portfolio, Tribia has also served as an ambassador to GM Global Design in driving the successful outcome of some joint venture programs in Japan.

A graduate of Mackenzie University, Tribia holds a Bachelor's degree in Automotive Design and post graduate degree in Business Administration from FGV University, both located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

Tribia's promotion marks a significant achievement not only for the Brazilian designer, but for Brazil as a whole. Until now, all of General Motors' Design Directors in Brazil have been foreigners from the United States or Europe.
