Amedeo Felisa appointed new Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin

LONDON, UK: The Board of Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings announced that by mutual agreement Tobias Moers will stand down from his role as Chief Executive Officer. The Board announces the appointment of Amedeo Felisa as Chief Executive Officer.

A former CEO of Ferrari, he is one of the most highly regarded leaders and engineering professionals in the high-performance luxury sports car sector. Currently a Non-Executive Director of the Company, Amedeo will be appointed an Executive Director with immediate effect.

Amedeo has spent his entire career in automotive and engineering with over 26 years in leadership roles at Ferrari, including eight as CEO, guiding the Italian-based luxury automotive OEM through its turnaround and growth phase as the engineering and product-development force behind every new model.

With Aston Martin set to enter a new phase of growth and development, Amedeo Felisa will focus on delivering the Company’s continued strategic objectives, financial targets and roadmap towards electrification. To meet these goals, Amedeo is to implement and lead a new organisational structure with a focus on broadening the technical team through the promotion of internal talent together with added expertise of strategic external hires, identified and set to be announced in the coming weeks.

To further strengthen the leadership team, the Company has also appointed the highly experienced engineer Roberto Fedeli as its Chief Technical Officer. Roberto is another proven leader in the luxury high-performance sports cars sector.

He is considered the creator of Ferrari LaFerrari, the Italian company’s first hybrid supercar as well as some of its most iconic models during his 26-year tenure. Roberto will join Aston Martin with effect from 1 June 2022 to lead the Company’s technical team and expand its reputation for cutting-edge engineering. He will be bringing his extensive knowledge, passion for innovation and his most recent experiences in the implementation of electrification technologies during his time at BMW.

To deliver the next-generation sports cars, and lead the way to electrification, these two appointments will significantly strengthen the senior leadership team which, combined with the new organisational structure, will drive further and faster innovation and instil greater cohesion and effectiveness across the Company.

Amedeo Felisa, Aston Martin Lagonda Chief Executive Officer said: “It is very exciting for me to take on this role at Aston Martin as we embark on the Company’s next phase of growth. I have great confidence in Lawrence’s vision, and I’m grateful for his, and the Board’s, trust in my leadership.

Over the past year, through my work as a Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the Product Strategy Committee, I have come to know Aston Martin and its senior leadership team very well. I know there is an impressive pool of talent inside the Company, as well as an extraordinary technological ecosystem in the UK, made up of innovators, universities, automotive and racing specialists, with whom we want to deepen our relationships.

We have a clear objective to continue the transformation of Aston Martin into an ultra-luxury, high-performance brand and become a leader in our sector. We have a highly experienced and talented team throughout the organisation that together will enable us to achieve our goals. We have a tremendous opportunity to shape and enhance the uniqueness of Aston Martin’s future products, and to further grow our appeal with new customers by harnessing the introduction of new technologies, electrification, connectivity and innovative materials.”
