Fiat Professional has appointed Ricky McFarland as its new country manager for the UK.

McFarland has replaced Sebastiano Fedrigo who has moved on after four years to take over as Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s UK country manager for the Fiat and Abarth brands.

McFarland assumes responsibility for sales and marketing activities across the Fiat Professional brand in the UK and Ireland and reports to deputy managing director Karl Howkins.

He previously worked as FCA’s UK National Corporate and Leasing sales manager.

“Fiat Professional has come a long way over the past few years and I’m relishing the opportunity to continue moving the brand in such a strong direction,” said McFarland.
