CNH Names New Holland President

Posted on December 5, 2006

CNH Global N.V. has announced the appointments of Lorenzo Sistino as president of New Holland agricultural brand, and Georg Richartz, who has been assigned the responsibility for supply chain and logistics of CNH. Both report to President and CEO Harold Boyanovsky.

Sistino takes over from Marco Mazzu who will assume other responsibilities within the Fiat Group, while Richartz replaces Randal Wayne Baker, who had retained -- ad interim -- his previous supply chain and logistics responsibility when he was named president of the Case IH agricultural brand in September.

Sistino had been in charge of the Light Commercial Vehicles activities of the Fiat Group automobile division since October 2004 and responsible for worldwide sales of the Fiat brand since June 2005. Richartz joins CNH from the Fiat Group automobile division where he was responsible for supply chain since 2005.
