Jim Morrison, a lifelong Jeeper and courageous off-road driver, ran Jeep North America from 2019 to the end of 2023; he was then put in charge of Jeep Performance Parts, while Maserati’s North American chief, William Peffer, took over Jeep North America.

Morrison started at Chrysler in 1995, as the company was rising to record profitability. He was in charge of Ram from 2016 to 2019.
