Marchionne set to speak at 2014 Canadian International Auto Show

Article by Anita Panait, on September 5, 2013

Sergio Marchionne, chief executive of Italian carmaker Fiat S.p.A. and American company Chrysler Group LLC, will be the keynote speaker at the official opening ceremonies for the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) in Toronto. The development was disclosed by the CIAS and Chrysler Canada. The opening ceremonies will be a part of the media preview day on February 13, 2014, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the venue for the 2014 CIAS.

The show will be open to the public from February 14 to 23, 2014. The event will serve as a sort of a homecoming for Marchionne, who grew up and went to school in Toronto. The Fiat-Chrysler CEO is a dual-citizen of both Canada and Italy.

Marchionne has a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Philosophy and minor in Economics from the University of Toronto as well as a Bachelor of Laws degree from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University in Toronto. He also has Master of Business Administration and Bachelor of Commerce degrees from the University of Windsor (Ontario).

Marchionne shot to fame in the auto industry after masterminding the alliance between Fiat and Chrysler and is well-known for his straight talks. Frank Romeo, president of the CIAS, remarked that “if there is a superstar in the global auto industry, Sergio Marchionne is it." He said that they are delighted to welcome Marchionne back to his hometown to officially open the 2014 CIAS in Toronto.
