With profound sadness, on behalf of the AROC Board, I share the news that Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA, which includes Alfa Romeo, passed away this morning from complications incurred during a surgical procedure. A giant in the car industry, Mr. Marchionne, only 66 years old, turned around ailing Chrysler and Fiat companies, making them profitable, and successfully reintroduced Alfa Romeo to America. Additionally, he achieved his dream of Alfa Romeo returning to F1-Grand Prix racing circuit. We have lost a passionate, dedicated friend of our beloved marque. It is a sad day for Alfisti.
