Lubricant World - - PANORAMA WORLDWIDE -

The Board of Di­rec­tors of the Euro­pean Au­to­mo­bile Man­u­fac­tur­ers' As­so­ci­a­tion (ACEA) has elected Michael Man­ley, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Au­to­mo­biles (FCA), as its new Pres­i­dent. As of Jan­u­ary 2020, Mr. Man­ley will take over from Car­los Tavares, Chair­man of the Man­ag­ing Board of PSA Group, who served as ACEA Pres­i­dent for two con­sec­u­tive terms in 2018 and 2019.

The pri­or­i­ties of ACEA for next year in­clude de­vel­op­ing a path­way for the tran­si­tion to car­bon-neu­tral road trans­port, while en­sur­ing the eco­nomic sus­tain­abil­ity of the Euro­pean auto sec­tor.

“As an in­dus­try we want to take the lead in trans­form­ing mo­bil­ity in a way that puts the con­sumer first, but also en­ables us to re­main glob­ally com­pet­i­tive and re­silient,” stated Michael Man­ley.

The ACEA Pres­i­dent is elected for a year-long term, once re­new­able, from the CEOs of its mem­ber com­pa­nies, which are the 15 ma­jor Europe-based car, van, truck and bus man­u­fac­tur­ers.
