Meet the new head of safety and compliance

by David Zatz on

With Scott Kunselman retiring, FCA US needed a new head of vehicle safety and regulatory compliance; and, as of December 1, it will be Michael Dahl, former director of engine programs and global powertrain coordination. He oversaw the development of six new engines, including the VM diesel; before that, he was director of supplier quality.  His appointment may show how serious FCA is about stopping the flow of recalls.

Michael Dahl

Mr. Dahl started out with the Chrysler Institute of Engineering in 1985, and rose through the ranks from there. He has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan, and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Oakland University.
