Mr. Welburn is the Vice President of Global Design for General Motors, and he's been tasked with helping choose and providing the GM vehicles we've come to know so well, thanks to these box office juggernaut films.
This time, however, the film's production team wanted to use his office to replicate that of a CIA executive's. It's just one line, but it should make an impression, especially to those who know him.

Here are some snippets we've quoted:
Welburn, who is GM’s vice president of global design, said he spent a day filming the scene in GM’s Design Dome, and it took a few takes for him to “get angry.” He said he was worried it would end up on the cutting room floor, but the last he heard, it’s still in the movie. He wasn’t able to divulge what the scene is about.
Scenes were also shot in GM’s Design Center lobby and staircase, the executive garage at the design center and in the design center’s Virtual Reality studio, a room typically used to communicate with GM’s design studios across the globe.
Filming also took place in the company’s aerodynamics lab and climatic wind tunnels, and at an entrance gate at the Tech Center. Scenes were also shot on GM’s Proving Ground track in Milford and at GM’s Lansing Delta Township plant. Cadillac Escalades and the Cadillac Ciel concept car also were used.
