Former Jaguar chief Mike O’Driscoll has been appointed group CEO at Williams. The newly created role means both Williams F1 and Williams Advanced Engineering are organised under a single management structure.
His appointment is designed to “guide the long-term future of Williams”. He will lead the executive committee and will report to Frank Williams and the firm’s board.
O’Driscoll has served as non-executive director since 2011. He replaces Alex Burns with immediate effect.
Frank Williams said: "This new role strengthens the company and will help us achieve our goals both on the race track and in diversification”.
