At General Motors, Phil is responsible for setting and implementing global infotainment strategies that Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Opel, Vauxhall and Holden. Abram joined GM in January 2012 after serving as President and Chief Operating Officer for Sonos Inc, a wireless music system for home.

From 1996 to 2007, Abram held a number of positions in business development, product management and engineering.

Marni Edelhart: I am doing very well, thanks. How are you doing? Phil Abram: I am hanging in there. Phil Abram: Yeah it's funny, just this weekend somebody saw that on LinkedIn and sent me an email saying "hey I looked around and you are the only one of those, what is that? Phil Abram: Yeah, we have somebody who used to work at Nike. I mean he's working at our customer insights area, right. Phil Abram: You know and we talk a lot about that and it kind of leverages on what we're just talking about in terms of the type of people that we're bringing in here to help us understand the customer. Phil Abram: And it's got, and it can't be gratuitous connectivity. Phil Abram: Well and I'll expand it beyond connectivity because we've got so much more and I'll give you a perfect example. I had a supplier of ours in here and about a month and a half ago now. And they outfitted a demo car with all these capabilities and they go hey Phil, push the talk button on the steering wheel and tell it to roll down the car windows, so I went and rolled down the windows. Phil Abram: Yeah and we talk about pre-journey, journey and post journey, right. Phil Abram: Well let's see. Phil Abram: Well and that's and another thing is that if you get the information and you combine it with other information that's really where it gets exciting. Phil Abram: I think the key is really driving towards platforms and creating platforms, not dedicated systems and solutions. Phil Abram: It's just another three days for us, man. Phil Abram: Well thanks Marni and I look forward to seeing you when I'm there in October. Interview with Phil Abram, General Motor's Executive Director, Connectivity and Infotainment


Cadillac's new infotainment system is not your computer - The Verge

"It's really easy to say, and really hard to do, where you're conveying a lot of information in a short period of time in a way that customers just get and so that you don't have to explain it to people," GM's chief infotainment officer Phil Abram told me.
Before GM, Abram spent years at Sonos. He became GM's chief of infotainment five years ago. He loves his job, but wrinkles his nose at mention of the title. "Infotainment is a terrible word. I was filled with self loathing for taking the job of chief infotainment officer. It's such a made up and inwardly focused narcissistic industry word," he said. He prefers to look at it in a more holistic way. "No, the car is not a computer," Abram said. "The last thing I want is my car to be like a computer. You want [your car] to be magic. It's not trying to replicate a smartphone experience in the vehicle. Abram used the analogy of a kitchen to describe a car company's role - you might use gadgets in your kitchen for cooking and prepping, but you would never describe your kitchen as electric. Abram says the biggest challenge for carmakers is making a platform that can stand the test of time by anticipating uploads of the future, and most importantly does not behave like a snail. "It's got to be snappy fast," he said.
