DETROIT -- Simon Sproule, FCA's global chief communications officer since February, is leaving the company.
Sproule, 51, told Automotive News Europe sister publication Automotive News his last day is Friday. He decided he wanted to do something different with his life and pursue other interests.
"Simon Sproule has made the personal decision to leave FCA," the company said in a statement. "Shawn Morgan will replace him on an ad interim basis for North America. We wish Simon the best in his future endeavors."
He began his stint on Feb. 3, but he had not moved to Michigan yet. Sproule joined the company from Aston Martin, where he was vice president and chief marketing officer. He has also worked at Tesla, Nissan and Ford Motor.
He is the latest person to leave FCA's top communications role after a short tenure. The previous head, Niel Golightly, left the company in December after a year to join troubled airplane manufacturing giant Boeing.
The churn follows the July 2018 death of CEO Sergio Marchionne and last October’s announcement of FCA’s planned merger with France’s PSA Group.
