Make Your Mark Stories

Gianfranco Laguardia

Jeep Compass EMEA & Alfa Romeo Vehicles Line Planner

I have a technical academic background far from what it concerns automotive knowledge. So when I joined FCA 9 years ago, I had no idea about what the complexity of developing a new car meant or that I would be joining such a fast-moving world.

Well, I believe the most successful achievement of my career has been to improve my professional expertise and my automotive industry knowledge starting from a clean sheet day by day by being fascinated with every new challenge I face during my work path.

Guys, do not be afraid of joining FCA: it gives you the opportunity to expand your know-how, to acquire professional skills (even academic ones: I’ve been given the possibility to achieve 2 PhD Studies while working), to face yourself up with new skills – the potential is almost unlimited!

I have started my Company story by being a designer for Alfa Romeo Giorgio project. Then I moved to a Project Management position by ending up with managing timing and costs of Jeep Compass production and all Alfa Romeo vehicles. Destiny brought me back to origins (Alfa Romeo), but from another point of perspective: it is impossible to describe how amazing is understanding what’s behind a new car development until you are in it.

You have the opportunity to create your history… and make FCA’s one as well.

Challenge yourself, expand yourself.

Filippo Tremamundo

Global Benchmarking Governance Manager

I took a degree in Industrial Engineering and Management at Politecnico of Turin and after a couple of jobs in different companies and industries, I had the chance to attend a very long selection at FCA.

Now I’ve been working for FCA for 6 years in the Product Development department.

Let me give you three strategic examples of what the global teams I’ve led have delivered in this complex working environment: First, a continuous organizational culture review to be customer-oriented in the daily activities.

Second, a strong support to the programs aimed to tackle and reset the industrial debt. No day without a multicultural exchange across-the-world about technical and commercial cost-effective decisions for our cars.

Third, the launch of a Benchmarking team connected in Italy, US, Brazil, China and India to support the new vehicles development, according to the best-in-class technical solution and competitors analysis.

This is belonging, passion, but also awareness of being part of an innovation team – where new ideas and answers are found by means of the lateral thinking.

Ah Young Min

Senior interior Designer

I am a senior interior designer in Maserati and I have been working as a leading design projects for four and a half years in Centro Stile, Officina 83 in Turin, Italy.

I was born in Seoul, South Korea, and so far I have lived in four different cities: Seoul, Paris, Tokyo and Turin.

I have experienced many different cultures and every experience in each country gave me so much inspiration and understanding about diversity.

I started to design clothes when I was eight years old, dreaming to be a fashion designer living in Milan. Instead, now I am a car designer mixing fashion with high performance in Turin. Before I started my career in 2006, I tried various jobs in the fashion industry as a co-producer, promoter, and even model to explore and search for inspirations.

I joined FCA in January 2015. This is the third automotive company I have worked for after Nissan/Infiniti and GM. Joining FCA was a great opportunity since I have a big passion about the brand I work for and I knew I could positively contribute to the Company with my international approach.

When I have to describe by work in FCA, I usually use the sentence “From a single drawing to a car”; indeed I sketch both by hand and on computer, studying trends and competitors and working hard with digital and physical modelers, engineers and suppliers. All together, we work through many complex steps and presentations in order to develop our projects.

The most exciting part of my work is the “C & C”, which stands for Creation and Collaboration.

For me, it is always a pleasure to create and develop a design with my colleagues, who are very passionate and professional. We take our initial idea sketch and grow stronger and stronger with our various perspectives. After all my experiences in the car industry, even if it sounds obvious, I realized that a single person can’t make a car on his own. It is all about teamwork.

I work daily in order to maximize the potential of the product, not only by designing beautiful cars, but also by defining the correct products for the future global market.

To me FCA name means a strong and incredibly important reality, where we stand together to share our passion and to lead each other to common exciting goals.

If I have to describe FCA in three words, I feel to say “Incredibly high potential”: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is made up of a historical and cultural connection, which has incredibly high potential in the global market. The Company has strong power to develop future products in all segments with competitive technology in the various global markets. We can create the best product in any segment with our technology and design blended beautifully with our brands’ deep heritage.
