Fiat Chrysler UK has appointed Ashley Andrew as its new managing director, the automaker announced this week.
Andrew “brings to the UK operation a high level of experience in sales, marketing and dealer operations,” FCA said in a prepared statement. Most recently, the longtime automotive executive served as the head of marketing at Skoda UK.
Before his most recent position with Skoda, Andrew also served as the head of operations at Seat UK and held various positions with Rolls-Royce, BMW, MINI and Ford.
“I am delighted to be joining FCA UK at this exciting time,” Andrew said. “With award-winning products such as Jeep Renegade, Fiat Tipo and Alfa Giulia to work with, I’m looking forward to the opportunities ahead and to further growing our business in the UK market.”
Andrew replaces Steve Zanlunghi in the position. Zanlunghi, who served as FCA UK’s managing director for four years, has left the UK in order to lead FCA’s Australian operations.
“Steve has left the company in an excellent condition,” added Andrew. “I intend to build on the good work that the team here has done.”
