DETROIT (AP) -- Fiat Chrysler's safety chief is retiring from the company after a year of trouble with government regulators.
The company says in a statement that Scott Kunselman will step down Nov. 30 as senior vice president of safety and regulatory affairs. A successor will be named later.
The move comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in July hit Chrysler with a record $105 million penalty for violating laws in 23 recalls covering more than 11 million vehicles. The company also is under investigation for failing to report some deaths and injuries to the agency as required by law.
Kunselman represented the company at a government public hearing on the recalls held in June.
Fiat Chrysler said in a statement that he's been with the company for 30 years.
