Stellantis in Auburn Hills today announced Christine Feuell has been appointed Ram brand CEO, in addition to Chrysler brand CEO, and Matt McAlear has been named CEO of the Dodge brand, effective June 1.

Both moves are in response to the retirement of current Ram and Dodge brand CEO Timothy Kuniskis after 32 years with the company.

“I want to take the opportunity to warmly thank Tim for his passion, commitment, and contributions to Stellantis and in defining the vision of the future electrified Ram and Dodge brands,” says Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis. “I wish him well in his retirement.”

Feuell will continue to lead the electric transformation of the Chrysler brand and take the leadership of the Ram brand.

“I am confident that Chris will continue the work of Tim in leading the iconic Ram brand,” Tavares says. “Matt will bring a fresh perspective, while continuing to draw on the heritage of our iconic Dodge brand and leading the transition of the brand toward a sustainable future.”

McAlear will become a member of the Top Executive Team. In his previous role, he led Dodge sales operations and has broad experience in the automotive industry as well as in the medical and digital sectors, providing him with the foundation to lead the Dodge brand.
