Giulio Pastore will take care of the European operations of Maserati

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 25, 2011

Giulio Pastore takes on even more responsibility at the European operations of Maserati, which hopes to raises sales by ten times within the next five years. Pastore, who has a degree in engineering from Italy's Politecnico di Milano and who has been climbing up the ranks at Fiat, will take on the functions of two consolidated key jobs in Europe.

Earlier this week, he was appointed the general manager of Maserati's operations in central-northern Europe, including the UK, Germany, France and Spain. He is the successor of Thomas Hajek, who voluntarily leaves the company, according to a spokesman.

In a company statement, Maserati said that Pastore, who is 39 years old, has been the leader of Maserati's business in central-southern Europe since 2009. He had also served as Maserati's general manager for Italy. Fiat Group CEO Sergio Marchionne has set an annual sales target for Maserati to increase to around 55,000 to 60,000 units by 2015 from 5,675 units last year.

Before joining Fiat in 2001, Pastore had worked for Adidas. At Fiat, Pastore started with light commercial vehicle maker Iveco. He then moved to Lancia. Pastore will report to Mark McNabb, Maserati's global commercial director and head of North America.

The 50-year-old Hajek began his career with Fiat Group in 1988 as a trainee. In 1996, he became the sales director for all Fiat Group brands in Poland. He transferred to Mazda Motor Europe in 1998 to serve as its regional director of sales and he came back to Fiat in 2004. And in October 2009, he was appointed as the head of Maserati's central-northern unit.
