Dana Holding Corporation  has announced that David Kneisler, vice president, global quality, has been elected chairman of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG).

AIAG is a not-for-profit, member-supported organization that works collaboratively with automotive and manufacturing companies, suppliers, and service providers to help them operate at peak performance. Kneisler, a 20-year Dana veteran, joined the AIAG board in 2006 and has served as vice chairman for the past two years.

“Dana’s involvement with AIAG is a win-win scenario, as we work with our customers, industry peers, and the automotive supply base as a whole to improve safety, quality, and efficiency,” said Kneisler. “As a supplier, ‘seamless, efficient, and responsible’ resonates. Anything that we can do as an industry to positively impact product safety or quality, or to improve industry efficiency, benefits the OEMs, the entire supply base, and the consumer.”

Kneisler has served in multiple roles with Dana including program management, plant management, and in quality roles before becoming vice president of global quality in 2007. Kneisler’s responsibilities include global governance for strategic and operational quality, co-chair of Dana’s Product Safety Committee, and leadership for Dana’s Technical Problem Solving / Reliability Engineering, Quality Systems, and Supplier Development groups.

“David’s dedication to our industry and his commitment to collaborating with our Dana colleagues and with customers at all levels has made a significant impact on AIAG, and on Dana,” said George Constand, Dana’s chief technical and quality officer. “We proudly support AIAG, and I am pleased David has been recognized for his contributions.”

Kneisler earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Michigan Technological University in 1983, followed by a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Michigan-Flint in 1987.
