MILAN (Reuters) – Mike Manley, CEO of Fiat Chrysler, is in pole position to take on the top job at Ferrari (NYSE :), Italian daily Il Messaggero said in a report without a source on Saturday.
Ferrari and Fiat declined to comment.
Louis Camilleri retired immediately as Ferrari's CEO late Thursday for personal reasons after serving nearly two and a half years in the role.
Italian newspapers have since speculated about a number of possible successors.
According to Il Messaggero, a board meeting at Ferrari could name a new CEO next week.
Ferrari will hold a pre-scheduled board meeting on Tuesday.
Fiat Chrysler is expected to merge with the French automaker PSA Group at the end of the first quarter of next year. The top job at the new Stellantis Group will be taken over by PSA CEO Carlos Tavares.
