Alfa Romeo and Maserati global sales will be steered by a Canadian

Alfa Romeo and Maserati global sales will be steered by a Canadian

Reid Bigland, FCA Canada CEO and head of FCA’s U.S. sales, was named Tuesday to steer global sales of luxury brands Maserati and Alfa Romeo

Bigland was chosen to build up the Alfa and Maserati brands worldwide because of his extraordinary record of growing sales in the U.S. and Canada over the last seven years. Bigland’s influence at FCA’s U.S. headquarters has grown along with his responsibilities. Pitting Maserati and Alfa against such luxury heavyweights as BMW and Mercedes will test Bigland’s sales prowess.

After a 20-year absence, Alfa Romeo returned to the North America market in 2014 — a launch Marchionne entrusted to Bigland. Alfa also was the centrepiece of Marchionne’s 2014-18 business plan, which set ambitious global sales goals from 74,000 in 2013 to 400,000 in 2018. Maserati sales are facing headwinds from Asia, specifically China, which was expected to consume a strong portion of FCA’s luxury sales. Bigland’s new duties are another example of the “tests” potential successors to Marchionne will have to endure. There are going to be a lot of moves to prepare people who could replace Marchionne when he retires in 2018.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
