Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has named Mike Manley head of the RAM trucks brand on top of his current roles as APAC (Asia-Pacific) chief operating officer and head of Jeep. It's one of a number of changes "in the composition of and assignment of responsibilities within [FCA's] group executive council, designed to ensure proper representation of all of the group's major brands", the automaker said in a statement.

Reid Bigland was named head of NAFTA fleet while continuing to run NAFTA sales & Alfa Romeo and Timothy Kuniskis is now a member of the council with responsibility for NAFTA passenger car brands – Dodge, Chrysler and Fiat.

Kuniskis joined what was then Chrysler in 1992 and since then has held a series of positions of increasing responsibility up to his most recent role as president and CEO Dodge brand and SRT brand, FCA North America.
