EV maker Think taps former Chrysler exec William Nowicke

Article by Christian A., on January 9, 2011

Norwegian electric car maker Think Global AS has added 38-year-old William Nowicke, a former Chrysler executive, to its senior management team as vice president of global operations. In the newly created position, Nowicke will oversee the company's fast-expanding global presence.

Within the last 13 months, Think has refurbished a U.S. plant in Elkhart, Ind., and started production there for the North American market. He has also declared plans to open new product development and engineering facilities at company headquarters in Oslo.

Think recently stated that Nowicke joins Think from U.S.-based turnaround specialist AlixPartners, where as a vice president with the firm, he took charge of the successful restructuring of several manufacturing operations within the automotive and other industries.

Before that, Nowicke, an American, worked for Chrysler, where he held several senior-level manufacturing and manufacturing engineering positions. In the last four months, Nowicke is the third new executive to join Think's management team.

Barry Engle, a former Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Group executive, became Think's third CEO in September 2010 when he succeeded Richard Canny, who is currently the vice chairman of Think North America.
