by David Zatz on

Dan Knott, Senior VP of Purchasing and Supplier Quality, is taking a medical retirement after 24 years with Chrysler. Knott was Senior Vice President, Purchasing and Supplier Quality. Knott had “played an integral role in the product development of … the Viper, Jeep Grand Cherokee and the SRT line up.”

Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne wrote, “He has done an outstanding job in rehabilitating Chrysler’s relations with suppliers and, in so doing, enhancing our ability to offer more competitive products. I am proud to have worked with Dan in the last three years, during which time he confirmed on every occasion an extreme sense of professionalism and unwavering dedication to the restoration of Chrysler’s credibility. All of us at Chrysler thank him for his many years of dedication to this company and wish him and his family only the best.”

Scott Kunselman will take his place, from being Senior Vice President, Engineering; Kunselman joined Chrysler Engineering in 1985, through the Chrysler Institute of Engineering. Kunselman’s place will be filled by Mark Chernoby, who will also continue his Fiat-Chrysler Group Executive Council responsibility for Product Portfolio Management and serve as Product Committee Coordinator for the NAFTA region. Chernoby has been with Chrysler since 1985, advancing through the engineering ranks.
