Richard E ‘Dick’ Dauch, Co-founder of American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM), will be inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in a ceremony on July 18, 2019, at the MGM Grand Detroit, Michigan, USA. Dauch is reportedly being honoured for his manufacturing expertise, strategic vision, bold leadership and business success.

“After retiring from Chrysler Corporation as Executive Vice President of Worldwide Manufacturing, Dauch formed a small investment team to create AAM,” a statement from the Automotive Hall of Fame reads.  “Under his bold and steady leadership, AAM has become a multi-billion-dollar global company that is one of the largest and most respected Tier One automotive suppliers in the world.”

The Automotive Hall of Fame is now in its eightieth year, and recognises individuals who have significantly impacted the automotive industry and the world of mobility. In 1986, Dauch was named Industry Leader of the Year 1985 by the Automotive Hall of Fame for his manufacturing leadership at Chrysler Corp and Volkswagen of American.

Also set to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in July will be Janet Gutherie, the first woman to qualify for the Indianapolis 500; Sergio Marchionne, former CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles; and Patrick Ryan, creator of the first auto dealership finance and insurance department.
