FIAT Chrysler Automobiles UK has had a shake-up of its senior management team with immediate effect.
Alejandro Noriega has been appointed country manager at Fiat and Abarth, and will oversee retail sales and marketing for the two brands. He was previously head of the Fiat Professional brand and his experience and track record in commercial vehicles equips him well to take on Fiat and Abarth.
Richard Chamberlain is the new Fiat Professional country manager, responsible for all business activities of FCA’s award-winning commercial vehicle division. He joined FCA in November 2016 from Renault Trucks, and has experience at both OEM level and dealer retail, having also worked for Inchcape Mercedes as National Corporate Manager.
Lee Titchner has been appointed network development director, responsible for FCA dealers across the UK and Ireland. He moves from his previous role as head of FCA UK’s Mopar division – the reference brand in charge of customer care, services, accessories and spare parts – to oversee the dealer network.
Sebastiano Fedrigo has been named as the new Mopar service, parts and customer care director. He previously headed up the Fiat and Abarth brands in the UK and Ireland, and will now use his car and commercial experience to expand Mopar, its products and its services in this country.
Previously the country manager for Jeep/Alfa Romeo, Damien Dally has moved to a role at FCA HQ in Turin. His replacement is yet to be announced.
Ashley Andrew, managing director of FCA UK, said: ‘I am delighted that the new structure of the company is now aligned with the needs of both our customers and dealer partners. We have the right people heading up these particular departments, with great teams in support, totally focused on the growth of FCA in the UK and Ireland.
‘With an exciting and growing range of cars and vans, and with even more new models on their way, I am confident FCA will continue to grow and succeed.’
