Maserati To Get A New Chief Technical Officer



Roberto Fedeli was poached by BMW back in 2014 after a 26-year stint at Ferrari, well now FCA wants him back and they succeeded.

He was known as ‘The Prince’ while still working under Ferrari and had quite a successful career while there. Fedeli became Ferrari’s head of research and development in 2007 and the impressive lineup of models he was responsible for included the LaFerrari, F12 Berlinetta and 458 Italia. He had a hand in everything from the 458 Speciale to the FF.

He’s going to have an uphill battle ahead of him as the new Chief Technical Officer for both Maserati and Alfa Romeo. On top of developing the Alfieri concept into a full-fledged production car, Fedeli will also need to look over the aging GranTurismo and GranCabrio replacements. Before he can work on any of those project’s he’ll have to resolve the Levante backlog.

With his exemplary history, we could be seeing great things from him and Maserati in the future.

About time some even more positive news comes out about Maserati. But they seem off to a good start.

What I will be interested in is seeing what he does for Chrysler, that's an FCA brand which is really struggling.

Sounds like he has an awful lot on his plate but he also has quite an impressive resume so if anyone can take it on, it seems like this guy would be the choice. Is his top priority going to be the Levante or the Giulia?

I am also thinking about what this guy's reaction will be when he sits down on his first day and gets to see exactly what the state of things are.

He sure does but as long as he had the right people on his team there shouldn't be an issue, all about how well he can direct and delegate. Seems like his priority will be the Levante seeing how the Giulia is already on the market, Levante has a way to go and it's another very important product for the brand.

It's important but he'll still have to push out a few performance cars as that's what Maserati and Alfa Romeo is known for. Going to be interesting to see what he comes out with.

I find it funny how FCA says that nothing is wrong yet they change their chief technical officer for two brands that have delayed vehicles. Come one. Be transparent and tell us what he is going to be fixing. At least they took action to address whatever problem, but you don't change the CTO when everything is running smoothly.

Of course they're going to say that, why bring on more attention to themselves than needed. As with any company, politician, etc. they're going to downplay issues, keep them out of the spot light and work on correcting the issue.

It makes sense from their perspective. I am just saying that there is probably a significant problem when you bring in a brand new exec in order to take care of it.

Probably since that is a drastic move. Maybe we'll see and hear of the changes he makes, that's if they identify those changes as coming from his efforts.
