Matton held the post of head of the team Citroen WRC 2012.
“I have to admit that I have the honour to be appointed to this position in the FIA, said Matton. – During my life I worked at various levels of sport, including cooperation with one of the most successful producers [Citroen] in the history of the rally. However, this assignment is my greatest achievement.”

Citroen WRC has not yet announced the name of the successor of Mutton, but most of all, the French team will be headed by Pierre Budar.
