(Reuters) -Ferrari Chief Executive Officer Louis Camilleri has retired for “personal reasons” and Executive Chairman John Elkann has been appointed as interim CEO, the luxury automaker said on Thursday.
The company’s board is identifying a permanent successor to Camilleri, Ferrari said in a statement, which did not give further details.
Camilleri, executive chairman of Philip Morris International (PMI), also retired from the role, the Marlboro maker said separately on Thursday.
Philip Morris appointed CEO André Calantzopoulos to serve in Camilleri’s stead.
PMI’s independent presiding director Lucio Noto will serve as interim chairman until Calantzopoulos’ succession in May, the company said.
Chief Operating Officer Jacek Olczak will succeed Calantzopoulos as CEO in May.
