Stellantis, the new automotive group officially born on 16 January 2021 from the merger of Psa and Fiat Chrysler, has announced new appointments and changes to the group’s global design responsibilities. Ralph Gilles, former head of global design of the Fiat Chrysler group since 2015, will be the global head of styling for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Maserati and Fiat (Latin America region). Jean-Pierre Ploue, former head of global design for the entire Psa Group, will be responsible for Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Citroen, DS, Fiat (Europe), Lancia, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall.

“We will ensure an independent and absolutely recognisable stylistic identity to each brand’s product, but at the same time we will benefit greatly from the synergies of sharing platforms and parts for all 14 Stellantis brands,” commented CEO Carlos Tavares.
