Midland car-maker Aston Martin has appointed Mark Wilson as its chief financial officer.
Mr Wilson, who takes up his new role in June, will report directly to Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer and be part of the Gaydon-based firm’s executive board.
He brings a wealth of experience in the automotive industry with him, having worked for both McLaren Automotive and Lotus Cars.
Mr Wilson joins the luxury sports car maker from renewable energy insurer G-Cube Underwriting, where he held the post of chief financial and operating officer.
Mr Palmer 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.”
He added: “I’m very much looking forward to working with him as we activate our exciting and ambitious Second Century development plan.”
