Ford posts record quarterly pretax profit of $3.8 billion
Tony Posawatz, the former vehicle line director for the Chevrolet Volt who also briefly headed Fisker Automotive, has joined the board of directors for telematics company INRIX.
Posawatz, 54, currently CEO of automotive innovation consulting firm Invictus iCar LLC, retired from General Motors in July 2012. A 30-year GM veteran, he led the development of the Volt for the automaker beginning in 2006.
INRIX, of Kirkland, Wash., announced the appointment today. The company provides traffic data to navigation systems.
From August 2012 to August 2013, Posawatz was CEO of plug-in hybrid maker Fisker. He then founded Invictus iCar.
“Tony’s experience leading the automotive industry forward through the adoption of breakthrough technologies is invaluable to INRIX as we expand collaboration with automakers beyond traffic to a variety of other data-driven services in the Connected Car,” INRIX CEO Bryan Mistele said in a statement.
