Fiat NA chief resigned after demotion

by Bill Cawthon on

Automotive News Larry Vellequette reported that Jason Stoicevich has left Fiat Chrysler (FCA), resigning last Wednesday — a few days after he was relieved of his post as the head of Fiat North America.

Responsibility for Fiat was handed over to Tim Kuniskis, who was dubbed head of all car brands in North America. Mr. Stoicevich was reassigned as head of fleet operations, keeping his other job as head of the California Business Center.


Stoicevich was the third person to serve as head of Fiat. Laura Soave was brought in from Volkswagen in 2010 to launch Fiat, and was replaced by Tim Kuniskis in November 2011; Mr. Stoicevich took over in April 2013, when Mr. Kuniskis got the top job at Dodge.

Mr. Stoicevich began his ten-year career with Chrysler as a district sales manager in August 2005.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
