Redline Detection Taps Kinkade for Global Business Development

Redline says it will leverage Chuck Kinkade's experience in the development of new EV diagnostic leak detection technology.

Redline Detection announced Chuck Kinkade has joined the company to oversee Global Business Development. Chuck comes to Redline from Mahle, where he was head of workshop engineering and product management. He also previously worked for Bosch North America as a sales manager of new business development.

“I’m thrilled to join the Redline Detection team and help develop the next generation of technology solutions for our global OEM partners,” said Kinkade.

Kinkade earned a degree in Electrical Engineering from Lawrence Technological University, as well as a master’s degree from Central Michigan University. He has an extensive background in the automotive industry, with experience in engineering, sales, product management, and business development. Chuck holds several patents in automotive repair and telematics related vehicle diagnostics.

Kinkade brings his valuable experience as the company is experiencing steep growth with the development of new EV diagnostic leak detection technology for leading automakers in 160 countries around the world, says Redline Detection.

Kinkade is active in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC). He resides in the Detroit area and in his spare time he enjoys traveling, building radio-controlled models, and riding his Aprilia Tuono 1100 motorcycle very, very fast.
