Ernesto LaSalandra, former head of research and development at ST Microelectronics, has been replaced by Italian carmaker Vigna.
Angelo Pesci, who has spent 20 years with Semiconductor, has been appointed Chief Procurement and Quality Officer.
Vigna Thane joined ST Microelectronics last September, leaving three members of its senior management team, including chief technology officer Michael Leiters.
Meanwhile, Gianmaria Fulkensi, who has been with Ferrari since 2002, has been appointed Chief Product Development Officer.
Sylvia Gabrielle, who has been with Ferrari since 2019, is a former Chief Digital and Data Officer at Microsoft.
Ferrari’s electric drive is written for 2030, and the company’s first EV will be released in 2025. The Italian manufacturer has previously stated that it will not move to electricity until technology allows it to “produce a car that fits our situation”.
“If we bring new technology, we have to bring something new to the market. That’s how Ferrari is always working with new technology. The evolution of new technology is 100 percent in Ferrari’s DNA,” Chairman John Elcon told Autocar UK, our sister publication.
