Ken Kayser’s Biography

Kayser enjoyed more than forty years of management experience with the General Motors Corporation and was known as a results oriented leader with a broad based background in developing and implementing high tech manufacturing operations and manufacturing engineering applications. Ken’s specialties were in the rapid turnaround of existing troubled operations, improving product quality and development and implementation of new cutting edge technologies.

Mr. Kayser is still a shirtsleeves rolled up hands-on manager and/or engineer as the situation dictates and he thrives on the most challenging and difficult restoration projects.

Ken successfully managed several distinctive General Motors including;

  • 2000 Vortec 4.2 liter SUV awarded one of Ward’s Automotive 10 Best Engines in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. Ken received the GM Chairman’s Award.
  • Kayser engineered the 1996 Small Block V-8 Generation I Enhanced V-8 at the Flint V-8 Engine Plant cited by Motor Trend Magazine as the significant reason they awarded the “1996 Truck of the Year” to the Chevrolet Silverado and Ken received the Motor Trend Trophy
  • Kayser engineered and manufactured the1992 Mark V “Big Block” engines that powered the new U. S. Secret Service Fleet of Cadillac Limos for President Clinton’s Inauguration
  • 1991 Mark V “Big Block V-8” Truck/Marine program at Tonawanda Engine
  • 1985 2.8 liter V-6 with the Port Fuel Injection at Tonawanda Engine
