Doug Betts, Former Chrysler SVP, Now at Apple

by David Zatz on

Former Chrysler head of operations Doug Betts’ LinkedIn page says that he has been working at Apple since June.

Mr. Betts was recruited from Toyota to Chrysler by Cerberus, and placed in charge of quality there; his final role was senior vice president and global head of operations.

Some rumors suggest that Apple is creating an electric car, due to a secret “Project Titan” leaked in February.  However, Mr. Betts may be at Apple to simply increase quality after many complaints about software glitches in Apple’s desktop software. While he has an automotive background, quality methods tend to be similar across fields. From the Wall Street Journal via MacRumors.
