Now is the time to deal with the shock and pain of losing someone close. It would be disrespectful to both themselves and the one they lost to expect them to turn around and say “the king is dead—long live the king.” I’m sure Manley understands this and I doubt anyone outside of us fanatical followers of everything MOPAR have even noticed.I hope Ralph is onboard with the changes. Judging from his Instagram posts, he is understandably upset about the death of Sergio Marchionne. He has posted several memorials to him, all of which are excellent. Klaus Busse has done the same. However, none of them have even mentioned Mike Manley. I am assuming this is just due to his preoccupation with the events of the last few days. I hope they are all able to get over this and move ahead.
There will be a time to gather the team around and gently push them forward. MM will get it right.
