The foundation of Tom Gallagher’s affection for automobiles was laid by his father, a lover and collector of cars who exposed his son to cars and car culture starting in his earliest years.

The foundation of Tom Gallagher’s affection for automobiles was laid by his father, a lover and collector of cars who exposed his son to cars and car culture starting in his earliest years.

Fast-forward to 1989. That’s when Gallagher graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., with a bachelor’s degree in management and finance from the Krannert School of Management.

It’s also when Gallagher combined his passions, starting him down the path of a long and successful career with General Motors that had the 53-year-old Indianapolis native grow through finance to the shop floor to plant manager and ultimately brought him to Lordstown, where he’s taken on a new role as plant director for Ultium Cells LLC.

“My early career started in finance, so I was doing accounting and finance roles in the company in their Allison transmission business, and then that evolved into opportunities for me to enter the manufacturing operation space so I could get firsthand experience in leading a production team and doing work in manufacturing, engineering and project leadership,” Gallagher said.
