STUTTGART, GERMANY: DaimlerChrysler’s (DC) internal communications

are once again in flux.



Roland Klein, the newly merged company’s VP of global communications,

has resigned his post, effective at the end of February. He will become

SVP/corporate communication for Scandinavian cell-phone giant Ericsson,

a position in which he will head internal and external communications,

IR and public affairs.



Klein’s departure is yet another PR blow for DC, which has struggled

with integrating its post-merger communications teams. Too, the company

has lost several pros to its American competitors, most notably General

Motors.



Following GM’s hiring of DC SVP Steve Harris last February, at least

three former Chrysler PR managers have made the trek across town to the

world’s largest automaker A fourth exec has taken a position with

appliance-maker Sunbeam.
