On Friday, British luxury carmaker Aston Martin named Doug Lafferty, as its new chief financial officer. Lafferty will replace Kenneth Gregor, who will be stepping down to personal reasons after 18 months on the job.
Lafferty is currently the finance chief of Africa-focussed fuel retailer Vivo Energy.
Previously, he worked for three years as the CFO of Williams Grand Prix Holdings, owner of the Formula One team Williams Racing.
The development comes at a time Aston Martin’s Formula One team CEO and principal Otmar Szafnauer exited the team last week.
In December, Aston Martin had said Gregor will be stepping down for personal reasons.
