Blog: Dave LeggettNew Fiat Auto CEO

Dave Leggett | 3 October 2003

I guess Fiat Auto can't hang around forever for Martin Leach who's been effectively taken out of the CEO frame by Ford playing hardball on his contract's non-compete clause (David Thursfield must be well and truly off Leach's Christmas card list). I don't know a lot about (and this is still yet to be confirmed) new Fiat Auto CEO Herbert Demel, but he sounds like a colourful character and a straight talker with a decent record and some very relevant experience. I recall comments he made about overcapacity in South America when he worked for VW down there; he was very to the point.

Where now for Martin Leach though?
