As expected, Luca de Meo has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Renault S.A., and Chairman of Renault s.a.s., effective July 1, 2020. De Meo was previously the President of SEAT.
Mrs. Clotilde Delbos, currently the Interim Chief Executive Officer of Renault S.A. will continue to assume her functions until de Meo takes office. Delbos will take up her new position of Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Renault S.A. in July.
Mr. Jean-Dominique Senard, Chairman of the Board of Directors, says: “I am delighted with this new governance, which marks a decisive step for the Group and for the Alliance. Luca de Meo is a great strategist and visionary of a rapidly changing automotive world. His expertise but also his passion for cars make him a real asset for the Group.”
Senard adds: “I also thank Clotilde Delbos who provides interim management of the Group in an exceptional manner. She has demonstrated day after day her commitment and determination in the service of Renault. Together, with the support of a renewed and strengthened executive committee, they will form a high-quality, multi-talented team equal to Renault’s ambitions.”
De Meo joined the Volkswagen Group in 2009 as Marketing Director. He then served as Chairman of the Executive Committee of SEAT from November 1, 2015 until January 2020 and member of the Supervisory Boards Ducati and Lamborghini, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Volkswagen Group in Italy.
