Charles Stewart Mott (June 2, 1875 — 1973) was a US industrialist and philanthropist who was born in Newark, New Jersey. His parents were John Coon Mott and Isabella Turmball Stewart. He began a bicycle wheel making business (Weston-Mott Co.), which he moved to Flint, Michigan in 1905 in a merger with Buick. The company was later bought by General Motors in exchange for GM stock. Mott served on the GM Board of Directors until his death in 1973.
