Olivier Bourges was appointed head of the Global Corporate Office and Public Affairs Officer in July 2023 and has served as a member of Stellantis’ Top Executive Team since January 2021. Previously, he was Chief Planning Officer, a position he held since the creation of Stellantis in January 2021. He joined PSA in 2014 as General Secretary of the company and moved on to become Planning Executive Vice President in 2018.

Richard Schwarzwald came to Stellantis through Fiat, which he joined in 2004 as senior vice president for quality and supplier quality for the Italian brands. He left the company in 2007 to run quality for Volkswagen South America, then came back in 2016 as head of Fiat Chrysler’s Latin American quality; in 2018 he was promoted to global head of quality.  Stellantis made him chief customer experience officer in January 2021.

Finally, Stellantis said Clara Ingen-Housz, who joined the company earlier this year, will take over Bourges’ current post as Global Corporate Office and Public Affairs Officer, joining the company’s more than 30-member top executive team. She previously worked for Saint-Gobain, a French manufacturing company.

These moves come amidst other senior executive departure this month that included Stellantis’ Dodge and Ram brands CEO Tim Kuniskis retiring after a nearly 32-year career with the automaker.
