- The architect of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the master of reviving ailing car companies, Sergio Marchionne, has died aged 66.
- Mr Marchionne is credited with rescuing a crippled Fiat, taking on the role of CEO in 2004 just after it had posted a $US7 billion loss. He promptly sacked most of Fiat’s management and within 10 years, he merged Fiat with another ailing orphan, Chrysler, and took it to a Wall Street public listing.
