Carlos Zarlenga will replace Mark Stewart as Stellantis's chief operating officer in North America starting Feb. 1, to leverage Zarlenga's extensive experience and drive further improvements in the company's performance in the region, particularly in advancing the potential of their iconic American brands.

Zarlenga is a seasoned leader with more than a decade of automotive experience in EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin America, together with a strong financial background. Since he joined Stellantis in 2022 as president of Stellantis Mexico, he has delivered a year-on-year improvement in sales performance, market share and AOI, leading to the best profit level ever recorded in Mexico.

Zarlenga graduated from Universidad de Belgrano–Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“In the very demanding North American market with many obstacles to overcome in order to foster the performance of the company, Carlos Zarlenga is the best leader among our talent pool to replace Mark Stewart and to drive the change in our business model towards electrification in the region," said said Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis. "Carlos Zarlenga has demonstrated his ability to bring together and unite diverse teams and to deliver the expected results. I would like to thank Mark Stewart for his contribution to this role after a three-year cycle, corresponding to the date of creation of Stellantis and I wish him the best in his new position.”
