Inforum's Annual Auto Show Breakfast Kicks Off New Year

DETROIT, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inforum kicks off the New Year with its 11th Annual Auto Show Breakfast featuring Sergio Marchionne, chairman and CEO, Chrysler Group LLC and CEO, Fiat S.p.A. The event is sold-out with an audience of 1,000 who will be in attendance. Chrysler and KPMG LLP are presenting sponsors of the event. The Honorable Debbie Stabenow will give opening remarks.

At the helm of Chrysler's dramatic turnaround, Marchionne is bringing together two companies with cultures as different as its global brands Alfa Romeo and Jeep. Marchionne will give a presentation covering a range of topics, including his leadership principles, winning the talent war with diversity and inclusion, and the making of those famous Super Bowl ads.

Joining Marchionne on stage for Q&A is Rebecca Lindland, director of research for IHS Automotive. Lindland is part of an 8-person global team responsible for evaluating and assessing OEMs that participate in the U.S. and Canada marketplaces.

"We are excited to kick off our first event of the year with such a fascinating and transformative leader as Mr. Marchionne," said Terry Barclay, president and CEO of Inforum and Inforum Center for Leadership. "Over the past decade, Inforum's Auto Show Breakfast has become an anticipated event during one of the most important weeks of the year in southeast Michigan."
