New CIO for FCA-NA after gov’t probe

by David Zatz on

ryan-talbottOn the departure of Scott Sandschafer, Ryan Talbott has become the Chief Information Officer for North America and head of information and communication technology for the Asia-Pacific region.

FCA did not say why Mr. Sandschafer was leaving other than “to pursue other interests.”  He appears to have left just after an internal investigation into under-reporting of incidents to the NHTSA  has ended, with the apparent conclusion that there were numerous systems errors.  The events may be unrelated.

Mr. Talbott joined the company in 2010, and, before that, was a technology implementation consultant for Accenture.

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.
