Stellantis has announced changes to its leadership team, effective from June 1st.

Luca Napolitano will be appointed Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Stellantis, in addition to his current responsibility as Lancia brand CEO. Napolitano will replace Thierry Koskas who will now focus on the expansion of the Citroën brand.

Napolitano brings sales expertise and automotive industry experience in both fleet and retail sales as well as dealer management and network development to the role.

Olivier Bourges has been appointed Chief Customer Experience Officer replacing Richard Schwarzwald who will be leaving Stellantis for personal reasons.

Bourges will take on the challenge of reaching Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 commitment to be number one in customer satisfaction, drawing on his deep knowledge of the industry and Stellantis operations.

Clara Ingen-Housz, who joined Stellantis in early 2024, will be replacing Bourges in his current position, being appointed head of the Global Corporate Office and Public Affairs.

Ingen-Housz, who was previously Saint-Gobain’s Group Legal Counsel and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, will become a member of the top executive team at Stellantis.

“I want to take the opportunity to warmly thank Richard for his drive, unwavering focus on our customers and contribution to the early years of Stellantis. I wish him well,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares.

“I have every confidence in Thierry’s ability to drive the growth of the Citroën brand, Olivier’s determination to bring Stellantis to the next level of customer satisfaction and warmly welcome Clara to the Top Executive Team as we continue to execute our Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, together with our passionate stakeholders around the world.”
