Peter Grady, a familiar face on Chrysler's fleet sales team earlier this decade with a dealer network role, has retired from the company about a year after he moved over to head Maserati North America.

On March 31, Grady is retiring from his role as vice president of dealer network development and member of the company's NAFTA Leadership Team. On Jan. 1, he leaves his role at Maserati. Christian Gobber is taking over Maserati North America.

"I want to thank Pete for his many years of dedication to the company and wish him and his family the very best," said Sergio Marchionne, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO, in a release.

Grady, 54, had been leading a revival at Maserati, which reported record November sales of 1,235 vehicles.

"Maserati is well on its way to tripling its sales in North America over the past two years, which is a tremendous accomplishment as a niche luxury automotive manufacturer," Grady said in a Dec. 2 release.

On Nov. 11, 2013, Grady left his role as vice president over fleet operations. Grady came to Chrysler in 1987, when the automaker acquired American Motors Corp. Grady started his career with American Motors in 1984.
