TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - In advance of the Pranzo Con Sergio Marchionne event in support of the Abruzzo Earthquake Relief Fund, media are invited to a press conference with Mr. Marchionne.

Born in Abruzzo, educated in Canada, Mr. Marchionne's achievements have become legendary and he has most recently been named Report on Business magazine's CEO of the Year. Since taking the helm as CEO of Fiat SpA in 2004, he has delivered one of the auto industry's most impressive turnarounds in recent history. As current CEO of Chrysler Group LLC, Mr. Marchionne brings with him his vast professional experience and visionary business instincts to meet the many challenges of the North American auto market.
