Effective immediately, Luca De Meo has just been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Alfa Romeo Automobiles, replacing Antonio Baravalle, who is leaving the Fiat Group of his own accord.
De Meo will retain his current position as Chief Marketing Officer of the Fiat Group, with responsibility for all marketing-related activities across all Fiat Group sectors, as well as his responsibilities as Chief Executive Officer of Abarth.
De Meo’s simultaneous commitment to the development of the Alfa Romeo brand and to the promotion of marketing activities puts him in an ideal position to further one of Alfa Romeo’s most important projects – its return to the US market.
The Fiat Group wishes to thank Antonio Baravalle for his professional cooperation and valuable contributions in recent years.
Sergio Marchionnne, Chief Executive Officer of the Fiat Group, comments: “The commitment, passion and determination with which Luca De Meo faces great challenges is the best guarantee for Alfa Romeo’s relaunch plan and the development of marketing activities across all Fiat Group brands. I would like to thank Antonio Baravalle, who always worked with intelligence and dedication, and wish him well in his future activities.”
