It is being reported that Ferrari chief executive Amedeo Felisa has stepped down from his position with the Italian automaker.
Felisa has held the position of Ferrari’s CEO since Jean Todt left in 2008. He therefore worked alongside former president Luca di Montezemolo for a number of years shaping the future of Ferrari.
Felisa initially joined Ferrari in 1990 and initially held the role of technical director. In 2001, he was appointed as the general manager of the Gran Turismo Department while in June 2004, he was named as deputy general manager of Ferrari. Two years later he was the successful automaker’s general manager before his aforementioned promotion to chief executive in 2008.
Understandably, Ferrari is refusing to comment on the speculation. If the reports are true however, it would come at an unexpected time for the company as its IPO fast approaches.
