Stellantis has hired Chris Taylor, a longtime information technology executive, to the new position of chief digital officer "to help lead Stellantis’ transformation into a sustainable mobility tech company."
Taylor, most recently chief transformation officer at ServiceNow, a U.S.-based software company, will report to Xavier Chereau, chief human resources and transformation officer, and Ned Curic, Stellantis’ chief technology officer.
Taylor, who has a doctorate in aeronautical engineering from the University of Glasgow, also held executive positions at Airbus, Quantas and Etihad Airways, and worked at British Telecom.
At Stellantis, he will also be responsible for improving IT project execution and organizational efficiency, the company said in a news release on Wednesday.
"His background in cyber security, new business models and customer-centric solutions will drive the business value we require to meet our aggressive Dare Forward 2030 targets," Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said in the release.
