The CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said that the Jeep will not be sold and thanks to the new generation of the Jeep Wrangler, the iconic brand will help double the benefits of the group.
Hace of a few months, the news does not seem encouraging for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, because it was said that the most precious of all brands in the group would end up in the hands of chinese, either Guangzhou Automotive Corporation, or of the Great Wall.
Jeep is the star of the company and has gained popularity in recent times, with sales estimated at 2 million vehicles for this year. Due to its growing popularity, the rumors about a possible separation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, or a sale began to grow.
we do Not know if there were negotiations, and even though tes months Sergio Marchionne she claimed that the future of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles depended on the possibility of arriving at an agreement, now in the framework of the Detroit Auto show, the CEO of the company said that FCA does not intend to give anything away to the chinese.
Marchionne feels a great deal of optimism with Jeep and bet on the mark to help fold the benefits of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the new generation of Wrangler, presented a few days ago will be one of the keys to meeting that goal.
Sergio Marchionne will leave his post at the company the next year and its main objective before that happens is the new strategy to five years that include the development of a business plan for Fiat Chrysler until the year 2022, without the need of give up to the Jeep.
Another of the issues that you think the executive is in the search for his successor and while the chief of finance Richard Palmer, the chief european Alfredo Altavilla and the head of Jeep Mike Manley sounded like possible candidates to succeed him, what is certain is that Marchionne ensures that they are not the only candidates, and perhaps his successor will find some of the executives who typically do not appear in the media.
