Jean-Pierre Mesic departs Stellantis

Jean-Pierre Mesic departs Stellantis

Barely a year after he started in the role, Jean-Pierre Mesic has vacated his position of B2B sales manager of Stellantis France, reports Journal Auto.

Mesic joined Stellantis in May 2021 after a career at Renault, which included roles in fleet sales for the diamond brand, plus VP in charge of international and used vehicles. He then became managing director of Renault Spain and Portugal.

The reason for his departure is not known but Journal Auto says it raises questions about the management of Stellantis and speculates that it could be due to the manufacturer’s policy to unilaterally abolish rebates to professionals, which it communicated to employees in a letter dated October 29th, 2021.

Pending the appointment of a new director to replace Mesic, Gauthier Helleputte is stepping in as interim manager.
