Veteran Chrysler lobbyist Robert Liberatore to advise Sergio Marchionne

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Veteran Chrysler lobbyist Robert Liberatore has been appointed as special interim adviser to Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne on external affairs.

Liberatore will serve until a permanent replacement is found for John Bozzella, Chrysler's senior vice president of external affairs and the company's top Washington official.

Shawn Morgan, a Chrysler spokeswoman, said that Bozzella had resigned last December. Liberatore is expected to "provide advice to the company on external affairs issues."

In 1985, Liberatore joined Chrysler from a 10-year stay in Capitol Hill, including four years as staff director for U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.

In 1993, Liberatore was elected a Chrysler officer and he was Chrysler's top Washington adviser and lobbyist until he retired in 2007 as DaimlerChrysler group vice president of global affairs and public policy.

He then became a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund, a think tank that specializes in trans-Atlantic issues. While the carmaker looks for Bozzella's replacement, Liberatore will not be asked to run the company's Washington office. The federal government has a 10% stake in Chrysler, which owes $5.7 billion to the U.S. Department of Treasury.
