Jan Griffiths is the President and Founder of Gravitas Detroit, a leadership coaching company committed to developing the leaders of the future by providing workshops and coaching to build high performance teams.

Armed with the skills she learned in the Welsh farmlands and a degree from the University of Wales, Jan moved to the United States at 23. She quickly made her mark and rose through the corporate ranks, ultimately serving as Chief Procurement Officer for a $3 billion, Tier-1 global automotive supplier. Her success in the position helped earn a spot on Automotive News’ list of the 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry.

For all her success in the automotive space, Jan’s true passions have always been for driving change and inspiring professional leaders. This passion drove her to transition into a second career at Gravitas Detroit. In her new role, Jan brings compelling energy to industry, professional, and educational events. She’s already proven a success earning awards like Corp Magazine’s MVP Entrepreneur Award and sharing the stage with notable thought leaders including Carly Fiorina and Dr. Janet Yellen.

In January 2020, Jan launched the Finding Gravitas podcast where she interviews some of the finest leadership minds in the quest for Gravitas.

Jan stays active in the community serving on the Global Supply Chain Management Advisory Board at Wayne State University and the Automotive Women’s Association.

Jan likes to seize the day as an early-morning workout junkie and shares her passion for early mornings with the creation of The Accountability Lab, born out of the struggle of the Pandemic, it provides a supportive community for all members to achieve their goals.
