Stellantis Unveils New Leadership Team Adjustments

Luca Napolitano has been appointed Chief Sales & Marketing Officer in addition to his current role as CEO of the Lancia brand. He replaces Thierry Koskas, who, after successfully establishing the global sales and marketing function, will now focus his sales and marketing expertise on expanding the Citroën brand. Luca brings extensive experience in fleet and retail sales, dealer management, and network development, having held positions across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Olivier Bourges is now Chief Customer Experience Officer, succeeding Richard Schwarzwald, who is leaving Stellantis for personal reasons. Olivier will tackle the challenge of achieving the company’s Dare Forward 2030 goal to become No. 1 in customer satisfaction, leveraging his deep industry knowledge and experience within Stellantis.

As planned, Clara Ingen-Housz, who joined the company in early 2024, will replace Olivier in his current role and be appointed head of the Global Corporate Office and Public Affairs. Clara will join the Top Executive Team. Previously Saint-Gobain’s Group Legal Counsel and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, she has had a strong international career with legal experience in Hong Kong, New York, and Brussels, bringing global expertise and enhancing diversity within the Top Executive Team.

“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 elevate 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.
