The Kentucky Automotive Industry Association has named its first executive director.
Tatman was appointed executive director by the association's board of directors, which is chaired by Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development Secretary Larry Hayes.
Hayes says Tatman has experience and strong relationships with manufacturers and suppliers around the state.
Tatman retired from the Corvette plant earlier this year.
More than 1.2 million vehicles were produced in Kentucky in 2013.
