 Head of Volkwagens Seat car brand to step down - source

FRANKFURT/PARIS (Reuters) - Luca de Meo, the head of Volkwagen's Spanish brand Seat, is stepping down from his current role, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.

Renault, currently led by interim chief Clotilde Delbos is drawing up a shortlist of candidates to replace Thierry Bollore, who was ousted in mid October.

"Luca de Meo is among those on the shortlist to head Renault, Clotilde Delbos is another one," another source said on Tuesday.

De Meo, who was appointed president of Seat in 2015, could not be reached for comment.
