June 20, 2012 – Auburns Hills , Canada (Techreleased) – Chrysler Group LLC is launching a program to recognize the experience, talents and creativity of its technical specialists.
Technical specialists are highly trained engineers whose contributions are critical to the development of breakthrough innovations. Chrysler Group’s Technical Career-Path Program affords them the opportunity to pursue personal fulfillment befitting their expertise. Accordingly, it is fully supported at the highest levels of management.
“Chrysler Group is committed to engineering excellence, so we need to commit to the people whose inspiration defines our products,” says Mircea Gradu, Vice President Transmission Powertrain and Driveline Engineering, Head of Powertrain Virtual Analysis Tools and SAE Fellow. “By doing so, we will maintain our competitive advantage.”
That advantage is embodied in innovations ranging from Chrysler Group’s award-winning Pentastar V-6 engine, to the unique front-axle disconnect system on all-wheel-drive versions of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans, to the segment-exclusive RamBox cargo management system on Ram pickups, Gradu says.
And by supporting Chrysler Group’s technical specialists “we will ensure our customers experience everything they seek in a vehicle, and more,” he adds.
The program establishes four levels of participation:
- Technical Specialist
- Senior Technical Specialist
- Walter P. Chrysler Technical Fellow
- Walter P. Chrysler Senior Technical Fellow
Qualification criteria differ for each.
