Aston Martin continues EV transition

Aston Martin has announced a raft of new appointments to support its continued transition to electrification.

Vincenzo Regazzoni steps into the newly created position of chief industrial officer, overseeing all manufacturing operations, while Giorgio Lasagni has joined as chief procurement officer.

The appointments follow Michael Straughan commencing a new senior position as executive consultant to the CEO and Paul Thomas named as Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) chief engineer.

Amedeo Felisa, chief executive officer of Aston Martin, said: “Since becoming CEO I have focused on three clear priorities; people, processes and organisation. Through these appointments we have expanded our world class team with talent and expertise to continue our work to transform manufacturing, drive operational efficiencies and build closer relationships with our supplier partners.

“I am also delighted to welcome Aston Martin’s first BEV chief engineer, as we continue to enhance our in-house powertrain and electrification capabilities. With a firm focus on realising our unique vision for all-electric driving, this appointment marks the latest step in our journey towards delivery of the first BEV Aston Martin, with 2023 seeing our engineering work under Roberto Fedeli move from concept phase to execution.”
