Fiat Chrysler CEO Manley to run Americas after PSA merger

DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley will run operations in the Americas when his company merges with France’s PSA Peugeot early next year. FCA Chairman John Elkann announced Manley’s new post on Friday in a letter to employees. Manley’s role in the merged company had been a mystery. PSA CEO Carlos Tavares will run the overall company, to be named Stellantis. Shareholders of both companies will vote on Jan. 4 on the union that will create the world’s fourth-largest automaker. The merger is expected to be completed by the end of March. PSA will get six seats on Stellantis’ 11-member board, which will be chaired by Elkann.
