FCA N. America Brand Chief Retires

May 09, 2019 at 8:34 AM

Steve Beahm, who headed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV's passenger car (Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat) brands in North America plus its Mopar parts unit, has retired after a 32-year career with the carmaker.

Beahm took over the car brands in February 2018 from Tim Kuniskis, who became the head of FCA’s Alfa Romeo and Maserati units globally. Beahm added the Mopar title last October.

Mark Bosanac, who had led FCA’s North America supply chain management and global parts operations, succeeds Beahm as Mopar’s North American chief. Bosanac joined Chrysler in 1986 as a sales trainee.

A replacement for Beahm hasn’t been named yet to fill his leadership roles at Chrysler, Dodge and Fiat. Separately, FCA appointed Christian Meunier earlier this week to head the company’s Jeep brand globally. Meunier had been president of Nissan Motor Co.’s Infiniti luxury brand.
