Automotive News 2011 All-Stars

As if bankruptcies and recalls weren't enough of an obstacle the past two years, the auto industry faced one of the world's worst natural disasters in 2011. The 9.0 magnitude Japan earthquake and subsequent tsunami on March 11 delivered another blow to an already fragile recovery.

Despite the difficulties, some individuals have thrived.

We unveil our annual Automotive News All-Stars, leaders who set the pace in tough times. Chrysler Group placed five individuals on our list -- including CEO Sergio Marchionne, who is our Industry Leader and North American CEO of the Year for 2011.
