Corporate Governance

By managing its business in an ethical, transparent and responsible way, Fiat Group’s system of corporate governance creates value for all stakeholders.

Fiat S.p.A. has a system of corporate governance aligned with international best practices and the principles endorsed by the Italian Corporate Governance Code for listed companies (issued in December 2011) with amendments adopted to address the specific characteristics of the Group. Over time, Fiat S.p.A.’s corporate governance system has been expanded to incorporate a set of values, rules and procedures that reflect regulatory changes and improvements in corporate governance practices.

Timeline of Corporate Governance 



(1) In July 2011, Fiat S.p.A. formed a management committee, known as the Group Executive Council, or GEC, to oversee and enhance the operational integration of all Fiat affiliates, including Chrysler Group. Nevertheless, the two companies remain distinct legal entities with separate governance. The GEC cannot contractually bind Chrysler Group, and recommendations made by the GEC to Chrysler Group, including transactions with Fiat companies, are subject to Chrysler Group’s governance procedures.
(2) Refers to Fiat Group excluding Chrysler Group.
