Finally, the World Car of the Year jury has selected the late Sergio Marchionne as the World Car Person of the Year.

On the FCA stand at the Geneva Motor Show this morning, Mike Manley, FCA’s recently-appointed President and Chief Executive Officer, received the award on behalf of his former boss. “It is an honour for me to receive this recognition from the World Car Awards’ jury, made posthumously to Sergio Marchionne. He was not one for pomp or fuss, preferring instead duty to the company he led for 14 years and the nurturing of a leadership team to take his legacy forward. I accept this award in this spirit and with thanks.”
