MARK WILSON has been named as the new chief financial officer at luxury car firm Aston Martin.
Wilson, who joins from renewable energy insurer G-Cube Underwriting, has a proven pedigree at performance car manufacturers having taken care of all things financial at McLaren Automotive and Lotus Cars.
Aston Martin chief executive Andy Partner said: “Mark joins us at what is, undeniably, an extremely exciting time for Aston Martin. We are currently implementing the largest investment plan in our history which will see a total remake of our product portfolio.
“By the end of the decade, not only will our current line-up have been replaced entirely, we will have added up to three extra model lines and entered new market segments.
“As our process of product renewal, segment development and market expansion continues I know we will benefit from Mark’s extensive automotive experience, his core financial management skill set centred on delivering rigorous cost control and his proven ability to work successfully with multiple investors.”
Wilson will officially take up the role in June.
