Resident Engineering Lead, Stellantis
In five years with FCA/Stellantis, engineer Paran Hilbi, 31, has progressed from data analyst to a resident engineering lead in charge of the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica refresh and all-whee-drive launch. Steering a staff of more than 25 plant vehicle engineers for the Pacifica refresh, she tracked all engineering issues to resolution.
An expert in manufacturing quality engineering, Hilbi challenges her team to be “best in class.” She developed “a team of leaders,” and she co-leads the co-op program with the Universityof Windsor, which in turn has resulted in numerous graduates being hired by Stellantis.
IN HER OWN WORDS:
“It’s an honour to have been a part of the first-ever hybrid minivan launch in 2017, and the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica refresh and AWD launch. My vision is to continue to demonstrate resilience as I develop myself along with developing the strongest and high-performing cross-functional team.
“My goal is to utilize passion as a lever to help the team do their jobs better, set clear expectations, drive collaboration through respect, reinforce positive behaviors and drive results.”
