Hyundai Motor North America has named Benjamin Michajlyszyn the director of the safety test and investigations laboratory in Superior Twp., Mich. He will oversee the new safety laboratory by supporting and executing all safety-related test and vehicle field investigation activities for Hyundai Motor North America and Genesis Motor North America.
“Ben’s extensive experience in the global automotive industry, including safety performance development and management of diverse organisations, will benefit the safety operation of Hyundai, Genesis and our entire North American enterprise,” said Latouf.
The new safety test and investigations laboratory further augments Hyundai‘s existing safety testing and analysis. It will feature a field crash investigation lab, high voltage battery lab, forensics lab, 500m track and a vehicle dynamics area pad. The laboratory is expected to be operational by the fall of 2023 and will be supported by 160 employees.
Before joining Hyundai, Michajlyszyn was the director of performance integration and digital development at Rivian Automotive, where he led the team responsible for setting and developing customer-facing performance targets for all future vehicle architectures.
With over 20 years of experience in the global automotive industry, including roles at General Motors and other electric vehicle startups, Ben has added value to many vehicles on the road today in nearly all segments.
Michajlyszyn has experience leading global teams across various time zones and geographic regions, including a long-term expatriate assignment with General Motors in Seoul, Korea as a global safety integration manager.
