AEC has announced the resignation of Mehdi Nabhani, International Sales Director of official European Dodge & RAM distributor, effective March. Nabhani has been with the Canadian-German corporation for six years.
Mehdi Nabhani has been responsible for the International Sales Department of the Canadian Auto Export Corporation (AEC) and its German subsidiary AEC Europe GmbH, an official European Dodge & RAM distributor, since 2014, after transferring from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) where he lastly served as the Head of Sales for the Middle Eastern market. Nabhani will be leaving AEC on March 1st, 2020 for personal reasons.
The 37-year old has taken a significant role in the growth of the company’s revenues, its accurate production planning and team building. Nabhani and his international teams have been growing the revenues of AEC’s official dealer network steadily over the years. This is especially impressive given the turmoil of the European automotive markets and the importer’s non-exclusive relationship in the distribution of the beloved American brands.
“Mehdi has represented the Dodge and RAM brands towards the European market with immense enthusiasm and dedication. Through his OEM experience he has been instrumental in bringing AEC as well as our official dealer network up to a recognized OEM standard. We will miss him and wish him all the best in his career and private life.”, says Andrew Pilsworth, CEO of AEC.
The successor(s) for the position will be named in the end of the first quarter. John Muratori, the company’s Chief Operating Officer who will also act as the Interim Sales Director adds “We are currently in advanced discussions with replacement candidates. We believe it is critical that the individual(s) that join AEC have a shared vision for our exciting future and are uniquely qualified to drive the next stage of our growth.”
