Chrysler Fills Out Board of Directors

Chrysler's Board of Directors was filled out over the weekend.

As I blogged about and as was reported at the end of April by CNN Money, this new board would be decided accordingly:

4 members named by the US Treasury Department
3 named by Fiat
1 named by the UAW
1 named by the Canadian government

So who picked who?
