Stellantis North America has announced that Carlos Zarlenga will join the company as President of Mexico Operations, reporting to Mark Stewart, North America COO, effective immediately.
Zarlenga joins Stellantis from General Motors (GM) where he most recently was President and Managing Director of South America.
In this role, he led the end-to-end business operations for South America. He has a deep understanding of the automotive industry, its drivers, and dynamics coupled with a strong background in finance. Zarlenga began his career at General Electric (GE) where he held a series of positions with increasing responsibility, including the position of Divisional Chief Financial Officer.
“Together with his well-rounded leadership skills, Carlos’ experience in different markets led him to achieve remarkable results, including a turnaround in South America,” said Stewart. “We look forward to having Carlos join our leadership team as we continue to transform our company into a sustainable mobility tech company.”
In a related move, after 22 years of service, Bruno Cattori, President and CEO of Mexico Operations, has announced his intention to retire, effective at the end of September.
“The company is grateful for Bruno’s many contributions, and I personally wish him and his family only the best in the future,” said Stewart.
