Will The Auto Task Force Have A Sit On Chrysler's New Board?
Chrysler and potential partner Fiat are discussing a new management and board for the U.S. automaker under a proposed alliance that could see Fiat take a stake in Chrysler, Automotive News reported on Monday.
Chrysler is racing to complete a partnership with the Italian automaker by April 30, with the Obama administration warning the alternative would be bankruptcy.
The two automakers are discussing a new seven-member board for Chrysler that would include representatives from Fiat and possibly President Barack Obama’s automotive task force overseeing the restructuring of the auto industry, Automotive News reported, citing sources close to the negotiations.
