Martin Whitmarsh officially joins Aston Martin Performance Technologies as the Group CEO from October 1st.
Why it matters: The former McLaren Group CEO and team principal comes back to the sport as he will help Aston Martin become a championship contender.
What they had to say:
- “Martin will enjoy senior leadership responsibility and will assist and support me in setting the new strategic direction for Aston Martin Performance Technologies and its subsidiaries (…) ,” the Aston Martin executive chairman Lawrence Stroll commented.
- “I have known and admired Lawrence for many years, and I have always been extremely impressed by his formidable business acumen and his seemingly inexhaustible ambition. Equally, I have always respected ‘Team Silverstone’, if I can call it that, which has often punched above its weight under its various previous incarnations, and which now has the weight with which to punch harder than ever before,” Whitmarsh added.
