AC Cars names new CEO

AC Cars has announces Swiss entrepreneur David Conza as its new chief executive officer, and his investment in AC’s parent company Acedes Holdings.

Alan Lubinsky, who has led the sports car company for the last 26 years, remains chairman.

With an established track record as a successful entrepreneur and investor in different international venture companies, Conza will guide AC Cars at an important juncture in its journey.

His appointment as CEO marks the start of a period of sustained development for the brand. Together with Lubinsky, he and his incoming management team will prepare the marque’s new state-of-the-art petrol-powered models and continue to develop its first electric vehicles.

He said: “I’m proud to be able to lead such a famous company and continue a legacy that stretches back 121 years. This is an inherently British brand, and we will honor that by building highly advanced cars worthy of wearing the AC badge.”

Lubinsky said: “As a car enthusiast and successful entrepreneur, David has a fantastic insight into the market and what clients really look for when buying luxury sport cars. His passion and determination will propel the company forward, providing the impetus and investment needed to produce the next generation of cars. I’m excited to be working with him as we carry the spirit of AC Cars into the future.”
