After Louis Camilleri suddenly resigned as CEO of Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) the wildest rumors have been circulating about his successor.
Current directors at Vodafone and Apple, and some others, have been mentioned too. But, Thursday, 31 December another name came up from within the company’s ranks.
With Mr. Camilleri, Ferrari brought in a man from outside the automobile industry, and that was a good thing. This is not a requirement for the new CEO and Ferrari wants to bring in an executive who can make money for the company. The best thing is if someone from the inside can do that.
And that person could be Andrea Agnelli. He is the current Chairman of Juventus Football Club (OTC:JVTFS) and via his family has close links with Ferrari. The Agnelli family is FIAT (NYSE:FCAU) and Ferrari.
If Andrea Agnelli would be appointed as CEO of the Maranello Outfit, we might also see Maurizio Arrivabene again. The 2 became friends during a previous collaboration at Ferrari and Mr. Arrivabene followed Mr. Agnelli to Juventus, where he ended up in the boardroom.
Ferrari is The Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
