Hispanic Business reports that the 14th annual matchmaker event hosted by Chrysler reinforced their commitment to supplier diversity and minority supplier development.

More than 270 minority, women, veteran and majority-owned Chrysler Group suppliers participate in the day-long program. The Matchmaker event has generated more than $2 billion in new business opportunities for exhibitors since 2000.

Matchmaker provides minority-owned, women-owned and veteran-owned businesses access to Chrysler Group’s Tier 1 suppliers and to decision makers in the Company’s procurement organization.

“Chrysler Group is committed to creating a diverse and sustainable supply base that directly reflects our customers,” said Scott Kunselman, senior vice president of purchasing and supplier quality with Chrysler. “Our commitment to diversity is deeply rooted and fully engages our entire team, including our extended enterprise partners. This enables us to better understand and satisfy –-perhaps even to better anticipate–the tastes and needs of diverse customers and communities.”
