Richard Chamberlain, Fiat Professional

Richard Chamberlain has been appointed country manager at Fiat Professional as part of a senior management restructure at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK.

He will be responsible for all business activities of the manufacturer's commercial vehicle division, and joined FCA in November 2016 from Renault Trucks. 

Other changes see:

  • Alejandro Noriega become country manager, Fiat and Abarth, and he will oversee retail sales and marketing for the two brands. Noriega was previously head of the Fiat Professional brand.
  • Lee Titchner has been appointed network development director, responsible for FCA dealers across the UK and Ireland. He moves from his previous role as head of FCA UK’s Mopar division to oversee the dealer network.
  • Sebastiano Fedrigo has been named as the new Mopar service, parts and customer care director. He previously headed up the Fiat and Abarth brands in the UK and Ireland, and will now leverage his passenger car and commercial experience to grow Mopar, its products and its services, in this country.

Damien Dally, previous country manager for Jeep and Alfa Romeo, has moved to a role in FCA HQ, Turin. His replacement will be announced in due course.

Ashley Andrew, managing director at FCA UK, said: “I am delighted that the new structure of the company is now aligned with the needs of both our customers and dealer partners.

“We have the right people heading up these particular departments, with great teams in support, totally focused on the growth of FCA in the UK and Ireland.

“With an exciting and growing range of cars and vans, and with even more new models on their way, I am confident FCA will continue to grow and succeed.”
