FCA Chooses Former Sec of Transportation as Independent Monitor

FCA US LLC has announced the selection of former United States Secretary of Transportation, The Honorable Rodney E. Slater, as independent monitor, consistent with the Consent Order signed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Company reviewed applications from several candidates and identified a group of finalists, each of whom was interviewed. Three monitor nominations, including Secretary Slater’s, were forwarded to NHTSA. This was done within the 60-day deadline prescribed in the Consent Order.

NHTSA, in consultation with FCA US, selected Secretary Slater, currently a partner in the Squire Patton Boggs law firm in Washington, D.C. FCA US looks forward to working with Secretary Slater in fulfilling the Company’s Consent Order commitments.
