Marti Eulberg, CEO of Maserati North America, has left her position to "pursue other opportunities," the company announced today. Eulberg, a veteran of Ford and Jaguar, held the CEO position for less than a year after taking the position just last June.
As it as been with most of the world's automakers, 2009 has been a tough year for the Fiat-owned automaker. Only 247 Maserati vehicles had been sold through March of this year in the U.S., representing a sales decline of 58 percent.

As quoted in AutoWeek, Raffaele Fusilli, Maserati's global commercial director said:
"We deeply value the concrete effort of Marti and the MNA team... During a very challenging time, Maserati was one of the very few automotive players in North America to post a positive result in terms of sales in 2008, thus contributing to the second-consecutive record year achieved by the company worldwide.
Fusilli will oversee Maserati's North American operations until a successor is announced.

      I worked with her for years!

      She was great to have at the helm, not to mention she stomped the sh*t out of any of the male staff (as in worked twice as hard and was twice as productive). Sorry kids, this girl would break you.

      I guess they sold all 247 of those Maseratis here in Houston. I see at least one per day.

      "pursue other opportunities," = Kicked out for not meeting targets

      Same thing happened to (supposed) Marketing superstar Deborah Wahl Meyer at Chrysler.....

      Why the focus on looks? Is it some kind of CEO/management requirement? She's better looking than Rick Wagoner or Bill Ford, Jr., who are not as good looking as Corvettes and Ford GTs respectively.

      Ooooh, that's harsh!
      Anyway, that's strange, as I've been seeing a few more Maserati Quattroportes recently than any time else.

      she'd have a lot better luck if she got a nose job.

      Sure whatever you say Alex. If I had a nickel for every woman CEO that was balls to the wall and capable of breaking all of us men story Ive heard, Id be a very rich man. And on top of it, there wouldnt be any male CEOs left in the world. All the big bad women would be running the world and companies.

      Clearly she is pursuing a job with Ford... Modeling.

      how the hell can you step down from such a job? It's a dream job for most auto nerds.

      I'm sure 2009 sales will be up because the Gran Turismo should be a big hit, even if people are pinching their pennies (or in the case of rich folk, pinching their Benjamins). The GT was not available until later in 2008 but I thought it might have boosted sales more than that.

      Who cares what she looks like, where can I apply. I'm going to need each of the cars for my company fleet.
