AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler is working with its Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne to find his successor next year, the car group's chairman John Elkann said on Friday.

Marchionne has previously said he will step down as CEO in early 2019. He has repeatedly said his successor will be chosen from within the company.
