You’ve likely heard the news that Fiat Chrysler’s longtime CEO Sergio Marchionne passed away suddenly this week, but did you know he was also an incredible patron of the arts here in Detroit?
CultureShift’s Amanda LeClaire speaks with Executive Analyst for Autrotrader, Michelle Krebs, about the impact Marchionne’s financial contributions had on the city’s arts and cultural institutions.
“When Sergio Marchionne came to Detroit…he was impressed by the culture of the city and the arts,” says Krebs.
“As a result, the company became a big supporter of music, symphony, (and) theatre.”
