Chrysler Establishes Vehicle Safety Office

August 12, 2014


Chrysler has set up a new office of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance, the automaker has announced.

The move shifts primary responsibility for vehicle safety from Chrysler's global engineering group, and establishes a dedicated mechanism within the corporate structure. The stand-alone office will be led by Scott Kunselman, a senior vice president who will report directly to CEO Sergio Marchionne.

Kunselman remains part of the company's NAFTA leadership team, focusing solely on vehicle safety and regulatory compliance. He had been in charge of NAFTA purchasing and supplier quality. Prior to that, he was senior vice president of engineering, a position that included oversight of regulatory compliance.

Tom Finelli, director of global standardization, will assume responsibility for NAFTA purchasing and supplier quality and join the company's NAFTA leadership team effective immediately.
