FIA CEO Natalie Robyn Resigns After 18 Months


Natalie Robyn steps down as FIA CEO, marking another high-profile departure within the organization.

The FIA has announced that CEO Natalie Robyn is the latest individual to leave the organization as she looks to pursue “opportunities outside the FIA.”

Robyn has held her position since November 2022, when she was appointed the first CEO of the FIA as part of an attempt to restructure the governing body’s framework.

But Robyn, who has extensive experience in the automotive industry with Volvo, Nissan, and DaimlerChrysler, has decided to resign from her position after 18 months.

“Taking on the role of CEO of the FIA was a tremendous privilege, and I am grateful to have led a restructuring and reform program,” Robyn stated.

“It is now time to step back, knowing that the organization is better positioned to face the challenges ahead.”

“I am very proud of my role in advancing the transformation of the FIA in the fields of sport and mobility, and I am pleased to leave an organization now comprised of a wonderful team of talented and dedicated people.”

She is the fourth notable departure from the FIA recently, with sporting director Steve Nielsen and technical director Tim Goss stepping down last season.

These departures followed Deborah Maier’s decision not to renew her contract as head of the FIA’s Women in Motorsport Commission at the end of 2023.

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem added, “Natalie’s appointment was significant as the first CEO in the history of the FIA.”

“She made a significant contribution to a major overhaul of our operational and management structure as well as our financial viability.”

“On behalf of the FIA, I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”
