    Timothy (Tim) Kuniskis was named Dodge Brand and Interim Chrysler Brand Chief Executive Officer - Stellantis in January 2021. Prior to that, in June 2019, he was Head of Passenger Cars- North America in and Global Head of Alfa Romeo in February 2018. He has been a member of the Group Executive Council (GEC) since October 2015. In other words, he oversees the Alfa Romeo brand around the world while leading Chrysler and Dodge passenger car programs in the United States.

    Kuniskis has connected with enthusiasts far better than many automotive executives at his level. He attends events like Roadkill Nights in Detroit, the Modern Street Hemi Shootout events and the Woodward Dream Cruise, spending long periods of time signing autographs, often under the hood of modern Mopar machines.

    While the Head of Passenger Cars Brands for FCA North America from 2015 through 2018, he helped bring the Hellcat and the Demon to market. After that success, he was shipped off to Europe to run both Maserati and Alfa Romeo, but he was eventually transferred from Maserati to Jeep for a short time, but he has now vacated that position as well. Based on his passion for high performance vehicles, he will continue to be involved in the future planning of Dodge performance cars that have dominated the American muscle scene for the past few years.
