Aston Martin has confirmed the appointment of Doug Lafferty as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director, replacing Kenneth Gregor.

The announcement was initially made in January, when Doug was Chief Financial Officer of FTSE 250-listed fuel retailer Vivo Energy plc.

He previously spent three years as CFO for Williams Grand Prix Holdings plc and 16 years in a wide range of senior finance and leadership roles at British American Tobacco.

In an announcement to shareholders, Aston Martin said Doug had taken his place on the board from May 1.

At the time, Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Warwickshire-based Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “I am extremely pleased to be welcoming Doug Lafferty to Aston Martin.

“His experience as a FTSE 250 CFO, his work for the Williams racing team and his multinational experience make him a phenomenal addition to our leadership team.

Tobias Moers, Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “Doug is a high-calibre CFO who will be a fantastic asset to Aston Martin and is going to be a great fit for our team. I look forward to working closely with him when he joins the business this summer.”

Doug Lafferty said: “This is an exciting time to join Aston Martin, with the company establishing a stunning product pipeline, a renewed culture of operational excellence and a world-class leadership team. I look forward to playing my part in this new era for Aston Martin under the leadership of Lawrence and Tobias.”
