 DETROIT, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard L. Klimisch, former executive director of the General Motors Environmental and Energy Staff, has been named vice president, Technical Affairs of the American Automobile Manufacturers Association (AAMA). His responsibilities will include supervision of all of the association's technical and engineering activities, and representation of the industry on technical issues. His appointment, effective June 1, 1993, was announced today by Thomas H. Hanna, AAMA's president and chief executive officer.
 Klimisch, a recognized scientist in the areas of environmental control, fuel economy, acid rain, and alternative fuels, joined General Motors in 1967 to direct the corporation's research in automotive emission control. Since then, his responsibilities have included manufacturing and vehicle environmental controls, vehicle safety and fuel economy, alternative fuels and vehicle recycling.
