It’s not often you read about engineers in the financial pages, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday when the Wall Street Journal posted a story that a leading engineer named Mike Donoughe left the company, possibly over frustrations in efforts to redesign mid-size cars. Donoughe headed ”Project D” , which is described as a crash program to replace the Sebring. Various bloggers claim that Donoughe was upset over the pace and direction of the project. Chrysler’s PR staff says there was no friction. Taking over Project D is Mark M. Chernoby, VP of core components, processes, and international engineering. Donoughe had been with Chrysler for more than 24 years.
