Frank Ewasyshyn to be replaced by Scott Gaberding

by David Zatz on

Chrysler manufacturing chief Frank Ewasyshyn, who started with Chrysler in 1976 as a maintenance foreman in Ontario and became executive vice president in charge of manufacturing at Chrysler Group in 2004, is retiring at the end of the year, and will be replaced by Scott Gaberding.

Ewasyshyn took medical leave earlier this year, and while he has made a full recovery, Scott Gaberding was interim head of manufacturing during his absence. Gaberding has been with Chrysler since 1993, the year the Neon was originally launched and five years before the Daimler takeover; he rose through manufacturing and purchasing, and was named head of purchasing in 2008.

Dan Knott, who was put in charge of purchasing while Gaberding ran manufacturing, will keep that role on a permanent basis. He started with Chrysler in 1988 as an engineer, and was head of engineering for small (A and B) cars before taking over purchasing in September.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
