Chrysler's Marchionne to Address Economic Club at Chicago Auto Show

Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer of Chrysler Group LLC, will address the Economic Club of Chicago (ECC) at the group's annual Chicago Auto Show luncheon meeting on Feb. 11, 2010. The event will be held at 12 p.m. CST in the Vista Ballroom of McCormick Place during the show's media preview.

"We are pleased and grateful that Mr. Marchionne has accepted our invitation," said Grace Barry, president of the ECC. "The auto show luncheon meeting has become one of our organization's most popular events, set with the backdrop of the nation's biggest auto show. We look forward to adding Mr. Marchionne's name to the list of prestigious guest speakers we've enjoyed over the years."

"Chicago's is the biggest display Chrysler builds for any show anywhere in the world," said OICA-sanctioned Chicago Auto Show Chairman John Phelan. "The attention Sergio Marchionne and his Chrysler team generated at its recent Business Plan meetings in Auburn Hills demonstrates the intense interest in the direction of this company. Like the rest of the business world, we're eager to hear more about the exciting turnaround of Chrysler and his vision for the future."

Marchionne was named Chief Executive Officer of Chrysler Group LLC in June 2009 and remains Chief Executive Officer of Fiat S.p.A. and of Fiat Group Automobiles, responsibilities he assumed in June 2004 and February 2005, respectively.

Marchionne is a barrister, solicitor and chartered accountant. He obtained a Bachelor of Laws from Osgood Hall Law School at York University in Toronto, Canada. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Windsor, Canada. He was born in Chieti, Italy, and has dual Canadian and Italian citizenship. 

Founded in 1927, the ECC is one of the nation's most influential forums for the dissemination of economic, business, political and social views, through its regular membership meetings. Invited speakers include industry leaders, heads of state and policy makers.
