DETROIT -- U.S. Rep. John Campbell and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Paul Ingrassia have joined the faculty of the 2011 Automotive News World Congress.
Ingrassia and Campbell will be part of a special session that examines the need for a national industrial and manufacturing policy and how such a policy might affect the auto industry in the post-bankruptcy era. They join Wilbur Ross, CEO of W.L. Ross & Co., and Lynn Tilton, CEO of the private equity firm Patriarch Partners.
Campbell, a 55-year-old California Republican, spent 25 years in the retail automobile business. His dealerships in California's Orange County sold Ford, Mazda, Nissan, Saab and Saturn.
The former certified public accountant was first elected to Congress to fill out a term in a special election in 2005. Campbell was re-elected to full terms in 2006 and 2008.
