Manfred Fitzgerald (58) will take over a principal management role at Piëch Automotive AG as the new Chairman of the Executive Board and Co-CEO. He was instrumental in nurturing and developing the Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini to become a globally successful iconic brand in the luxury high-end sports car segment throughout his twelve-year tenure as Director of Brand and Design. In 2016, he was recruited by Hyundai Group as Executive Vice President and Global Head of the Korean automaker’s Genesis division with the task of successfully developing the premium brand. With his arrival at Piëch Automotive AG, Manfred Fitzgerald now returns to the luxury sports car segment.
Tobias Moers (56), the future Chief Technical Officer (CTO) and Co-CEO of Piëch Automotive AG, brings a wealth of sports car expertise to the Swiss company’s executive management. After Moers joined AMG GmbH in 1994, where he held various leading engineering positions, he ultimately took responsibility in 2002 for the complete development of all AMG vehicles of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. In 2013, he became Chief Executive of the company.
During his long career, Moers substantially expanded both the product portfolio and profitability of AMG derivatives and all unique AMG sports cars and thus contributed to AMG’s emergence as one of the automotive industry’s leading high-performance brands. In August 2020, he was made CEO of British luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin, where he oversaw the turnaround of the historic brand. At Piëch Automotive AG, Tobias Moers will now shape the future of the young Swiss brand as the company’s head of development.
