One of the world’s leading automakers, Stellantis, has appointed a new Group Managing Director for the Middle East.  Frano Šušnjara will lead the company’s continued growth in the region, and support its aims to become the industry leader in climate change. 

The new appointment comes just weeks after Stellantis unveiled its Dare Forward 2030 strategy for Middle East and Africa (MEA) which includes leading the energy transition in the region with 100 percent of Stellantis product portfolio electrified by 2025; moving from 25 percent to over 70 percent regional production autonomy; and a total regional industrial capacity of one million vehicles per year by 2030. 

With almost two decades of experience in the automotive industry gained across major international markets, Šušnjara was previously Managing Director responsible for overseas territories for Stellantis. His industry experience - which includes roles in Europe, Asia and South America - spans sales, marketing, fleet, importing and network management.
