Dan Knott, former Chrysler exec, succumbs to cancer at 51
Knott's efforts to improve Chrysler's relationships with suppliers has even the suppliers praising him. After just three years on the job, the head of the Original Equipment Supplier's Association said Knott had done "more than any individual that I know of in the history of OEM/supplier relations" when it came turning around Chrysler's dealings with suppliers.
On top of that he was a racer, an Automotive News All-Star, an inductee into the Viper Club Hall of Fame, chairman of the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council, board member on a non-profit for people with disabilities, a key player in Chrysler's sustainability drive, and he enforced reviews of the business that the Chrysler's Tier 1 suppliers did with women- and minority-owned businesses. He will be missed.
