Renault Samsung Motors appoints Stéphane Deblaise CEO
The appointment is effective March 1.
The 49-year-old Telecom Physique Strasbourg graduate has served as a directing vehicle engineer for Renault's South America business and as a program director for the automaker's large family and small family vehicles.
Until recently, he served as a program director at Renault's advanced project and cross-car line.
"Renault Samsung Motors expects Debalise to contribute in developing new eco-friendly vehicles based on Volvo's CMA platform, which was announced recently," Renault Samsung Motors said in a release.
Renault signed a contract with Hong Kong-headquartered Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, the parent company of Volvo, early this year to produce new vehicles, including hybrid models, utilizing Volvo's CMA platform at Renault Samsung's Busan factory from 2024.
