McBride, 42, formerly a high-ranking member of the Reagan administration, joined Chrysler Corporation as congressional affairs director in 1996.

Most recently he served as director of government relations on auto issues for DaimlerChrysler.

In his new position, McBride will report to Chrysler veteran Bob Liberatore, who is the Washington, DC-based senior vice president of external affairs and public policy for North America. Liberatore joined Chrysler in 1985 after serving as staff director for Sen. Robert C. Byrd.

McBride will be responsible for the district's North American governmental relations, congressional, legislative and Washington-based regulatory matters, and administration of the Washington office.

Detroit-based Chrysler Corporation and Daimler-Benz of Germany merged in 1998, creating the German company DaimlerChrysler.
