DETROIT -- Deborah Wahl Meyer will become vice president and chief marketing officer of Chrysler, the automaker said today.

Meyer, 44, has spent the past six years with Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. and was most recently vice president of marketing for the Lexus division.

She will replace George Murphy, who resigned in May.

"Deborah is a great addition to the leadership team," Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli said in a statement. "She brings a proven track record of success to support our brands both in North America and internationally."

In 2005, Meyer was included in Automotive News' list of the 100 Leading Women in the North American Automotive Industry.
