Jim Press, Chrysler's Vice Chairman & President

SAN FRANCISCO - September 8, 2008: One of the auto industry's most respected and well liked executives is Jim Press. Now a Chrysler Vice Chairman and President (alongside Tom Lasorda), Jim spent many years with Toyota, where he worked his way up to President and COO of Toyota Motors North America and Senior Managing Director of Toyota Motor Corporation.

Last Wednesday Jim visited Northern California to speak to the Western Automotive Journalists group. Jim talked about his decision to join Chrysler after a long successful career; a move that many found quite surprising, and he discussed in great detail Chrysler’s plans for the future. If you’re a true auto-enthusiast or an industry member you’ll find Jim’s revelations and comments tremendously insightful.

The Auto Channel was on hand to videotape the entire event and we’re excited to provide the complete one-hour presentation for your amazement, amusement, and edification. We think you'll really appreciate his sincere, forthright manner.
