The merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Groupe PSA, dubbed Stellantis, takes shape. It became known what the leadership of the new group will look like.

At the end of last year, it was announced that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Groupe PSA would effectively merge into one large concern, immediately making it the world’s fourth-largest automaker. The group, named Stellantis, will take on the brands Peugeot, Citro├źn, DS, Opel / Vauxhall, Fiat, Jeep and Alfa Romeo. It was previously announced that PSA’s current CEO Carlos Tavares will also become CEO of Stellantis. Stellantis now goes into more detail about the organization.

The company will be led by John Elkann (FCA) as chairman of the board. Robert Peugeot (PSA) announced as Vice Chairman. Both Elkann and Peugeot are the heirs of the families who founded the brands that started it all: Fiat and Peugeot. They are currently also chairing groups, which are still separate. French businessman Henri de Castries, now chairman of the American investment group General Atlantic, will become an independent director.

In addition to the central office, a number of department heads are appointed, including Andrea Agnelli, Fiona Clare Cicconi, Nicolas Dufourc, Anne Francis Godbecher, Van Lin Martello, Jacques de Saint-Exupery and Kevin Scott. All of these people will actually start working after the merger is complete, which Stellantis believes should be completed by “the end of the first quarter of 2021.”
