In addition to running the Fiat brand in North America, Stoicevich had overseen FCA's California Business Center.
The Fiat Chrysler executive who, until last week, was overseeing the struggling Fiat brand in North America, has resigned.
Jason Stoicevich, 36, resigned Oct. 7, Automotive News has learned. An FCA spokesman confirmed the resignation, which had not been announced, this morning.
The resignation came two days after Stoicevich was appointed head of fleet operations and small business sales by FCA, but had oversight of the Fiat brand taken away and handed to Dodge brand head Tim Kuniskis.
Last week, Kuniskis, 48, who previously served as head of Fiat, was named head of car brands for North America, including responsibility for the Chrysler brand as well as Dodge and Fiat.
In addition to running the Fiat brand in North America, Stoicevich had overseen FCA’s California Business Center. He has been with the company for 10 years.
Like other small car brands, Fiat has struggled in the United Statesthis year as consumers trend toward larger SUVs and crossovers. Through September, Fiat sales were down 10 percent, despite the addition of a small crossover, the 500X, in May.
The brand is on the verge of introducing a Mazda MX5 Miata-based convertible, the Fiat 124, later this year.
