Fiat appoints Jack Cheng as CEO of its new China joint venture

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

Fiat Group has named Jack Cheng, its former chief procurement officer in China, as the CEO of the newly established joint venture with Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. Before joining Fiat Group in 2007, Cheng had headed Ford's China procurement office. At the 2008 Automotive News China conference in Beijing, Cheng (a native of Taiwan) was a keynote speaker.

Aside from Cheng's appointment, Fiat also revealed the other executive appointments for the joint venture.

The joint venture's deputy general manager position will be held by Jiang Ping, formerly the deputy general manger of Guangzhou Auto. The president of the new venture will be Zeng Qinghong, general manger of Guangzhou Auto; while Franco Amadei, chairman of Fiat (China) Business Co., has been appointed vice president.

The other board directors include: Fu Shoujie, deputy general manager of Guangzhou Auto; Paolino Gagliardo, Fiat Global's executive vice president for international operations; and Stephan Ketter, Fiat Group's executive vice president for quality and manufacturing.

Fiat and Guangzhou Auto signed a framework agreement in July 2009 to establish a 50-50 joint venture to produce cars and engines for the Chinese market.
