BORDER LINES: CHICAGO - Daimler Chrysler takes on PR head

Newly merged car manufacturer Daimler Chrysler has completed a restructure of its communications department and has chosen Daimler-Benz PR head Christoph Walther to run its 300-strong PR division. Walther’s opposite number at Chrysler, Steve Harris, has moved to head of PR at General Motors, as vice-president of communications. Walther will split his time between Daimler’s Stuttgart HQ and Detroit. The restructure will see the two corporate communications departments merged, with a Daimler man, Roland Klein, in charge. Klein reports to Walther. Chrysler’s corporate communications head Mike Morrison resigned last year.
