Jim Press, is Chrysler's Vice Chairman and co-President. I photographed Jim during the 2009 New York Auto Show. Just a few hours earlier he had presented the Fiat 500 and a new Cherokee to the members of the media. I found him in the Chrysler section by himself and asked him if I can photograph him. Unlike most executives, especially auto executives, he was very nice and agreed for a quick photograph. I am not sure what model car was on display behind him.
