NEW SERIES: Petrolicious Talks Episode 1: Head of Global Design At FCA, Ralph Gilles
Welcome to the first episode of Petrolicious Talks, our new podcast series with a simple but fulfilling mission: to bring more inspiring stories, deep-dive conversations, and insights into the future of motoring from the greatest minds and most passionate enthusiasts in our community. We hope our guests inspire you as much as they’ve inspired us, and we look forward to your feedback and suggestions for who and what you would like us to feature in future episodes of Petrolicious Talks.
In our first episode, Petrolicious founder and CEO Afshin Behnia joins FCA’s Head of Global Design, Ralph Gilles. Gilles is undoubtedly an artist, but his relationship to cars goes beyond aesthetics. His FCA résumé includes time as the President and CEO of the Motorsports division and President and CEO of the SRT brand, among other positions within FCA, which helps explain why he’s way more of a tire shredder than a bean counter despite his influence in one of the largest car corporations in history.
