Sergio Marchionne businessman of the year 2013 in both Americas
Sergio Marchionne is a man of many worlds, which makes him loved, hated, not understood but also honored. The way he saved Fiat and his conquest towards a global breakthrough of the Italian automotive group via Chrysler probably make the CEO in dark sweater the most unpredictable leader in the automotive sector.
There’s no denying his part in Fiat’s market leadership in Brazil, while the success of Jeep, Dodge and other brands in the US is also on his part. Fiat has been the most dominating brand on the Brazilian market for years, and the group is also going through a severe growth in the US and Canada. That is why the Italian has been acknowledged as being the best businessman in both South as well as North-America over the year 2013. This recognition comes from the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, wrote the Financial Times last Monday. Marchionne will receive his award on May 15th in New York.
