Peter Grady to exit as chief of Chrysler dealer network in 2015, Christian Gobber will replace him

Article by Christian A., on December 8, 2014

Peter Grady is stepping down as head of Maserati North America on January 1, 2015, and chief of Chrysler Group’s dealer network on March 31, 2015. He will be replaced Christian Gobber for the Maserati North America job. Under his leadership, Maserati was able to more than triple its sales in the United States in the first 11 months of 2014 to 11,531 vehicles.

Fiat Chrysler chief executive Sergio Marchionne thanked Grady in a statement. After joining the now-defunct American Motors Corp. in 1984 as a district sales manager, Grady has since held a number of positions in Chrysler’s regional business centers. He was then named director of remarketing and fleet operations in 2005.

In 2009, Grady was named as vice president for network development and fleet in 2009. It is thought that Grady’s resignation from Chrysler was a voluntary one, since he is not stepping out with immediate effectiveness but is extending his stay until end of March.

Grady himself announced his impending departure from Chrysler in a recent National Chrysler Dealer Council meeting. According to dealers present in the meeting, Grady received an “extended, spontaneous” standing ovation that left him visibly moved.
