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.
