Alapont leaves Delphi to head Iveco

Jose Maria Alapont, head of international operations for Delphi Corp., has been appointed CEO of Fiat Group's truck subsidiary Iveco. He succeeds Michel de Lambert, who took over when GianCarlo Boschetti was moved to head Fiat Auto as CEO. With more afinity with finance than with truck manufacturing, Lambert wished to leave, according to Fiat Group spokesman Richard Gadeselli, having taken the Iveco job when his former employer, the French leasing group Fraikin, was absorbed into Iveco two years ago.

J. T. Battenberg 111, the chairman and president of Delphi, which numbers Iveco among its customers, said, “We are extremely proud that Jose Maria has been selected as the new CEO for Fiat Iveco SpA. While we are truly sorry that he will be leaving Delphi, we are grateful for the tremendous contributions he has made to our profitable growth during his tenure here. All of us at Team Delphi wish him the very best.”
