About Lloyd Trotter

Lloyd Trotter was one of the key founders of the African American Forum and was the first African American Officer at GE. Despite the demands of his successful career, Lloyd always found time to give back to the community and help minorities in GE by redirecting “people of color so they have a better shot at winning the game.” He represented GE for America’s Promise, an organization aiming to increase volunteerism in support of youth. He has served on the boards of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME), the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the GE Foundation. Lloyd is currently a managing partner with GenNx360 Capital Partners after retiring as vice chairman from GE in 2007, capping a nearly 40-year career. Lloyd also serves on PepsiCo’s board.
