Chrysler today named Boag, 42, president of Mopar and global service and parts. He replaces 31-year Chrysler veteran Chris Cortez, 53, who is retiring. Boag will report to Jim Press, Chrysler co-president.
On Jan. 3, Boag was named vice president of global alliance operations. Before that, he had been Chrysler executive vice president for procurement for seven months. John Campi replaced Boag as procurement chief on Jan. 3.
Replacing Boag as vice president for global alliance operations will be Scott Garberding, 44, who most recently had been vice president of supplier quality.
