O’Leary joined Mitsubishi in 1988 and has held positions in all functions of human resources at the Cypress, California-based automaker, including management roles in HR systems, compensation, benefits, organizational development and training. Prior to her promotion, she was director of human resources and corporate services.

“Since I joined Mitsubishi Motors North America in April of 2018, one of my highest priorities was to build a world-class executive leadership team that would drive the rapid reinvention of Mitsubishi Motors in the U.S.,” said Fred Diaz, president and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors North America, in a press statement.

O’Leary was promoted along with a new general counsel for the company, a move that Diaz said was done with customers in mind. “These promotions add to an enviable group of leaders who are not afraid to challenge perceptions, question everything, and fight to make Mitsubishi Motors a great place to work,” he said in the same press release.

Mitsubishi Motors North America, a part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance of automakers, is responsible for sales, research and development, marketing and customer services for all Mitsubishi vehicles in the United States. The company will be relocating its headquarters from its Orange County home of 31 years to Franklin, Tennessee in 2019 to lower operating costs and be closer to the U.S. headquarters of alliance partners Nissan and Renault, according to a report in the Orange County Register.
