New Chrysler safety/regs office

by David Zatz on

In the wake of increasing criticism of General Motors for their handling of safety issues, along with fines handed out to numerous automakers and ever increasing litigation, Chrysler has created a new office of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance, led by Senior Vice President and long-time Chrysler veteran Scott Kunselman.

This will mark the first time safety and regulatory compliance has had a separate organization, reporting directly to the CEO, rather than being part of the global engineering group.  Mr. Kunselman is part of the North American leadership team, but rather than leading purchasing and supplier quality, he will focus solely on safety and regulatory compliance (not an unfamiliar post; before being put in charge of purchasing and supplier quality, he was in charge of regulatory compliance).

Tom Finelli, Director of Global Standardization, is taking over responsibility for NAFTA Purchasing and Supplier Quality, and joining the North American leadership team.

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. You can reach him by using our contact form (much preferred) or by calling (313) 766-2304
