Official: Andy Palmer is the new Aston Martin CEO

Article by Christian A., on September 2, 2014

Earlier today we reported about Andy Palmer’s departure from Nissan in order to become the new Aston Martin CEO. Soon after we revealed the move, Aston Martin officially announced that it will indeed appoint Andy Palmer as its new Chief Executive Officer to lead the company in its next phase of product creation.

Palmer served as Chief Planning Officer at Nissan and his duties at Aston Martin will start after he completes the transition period from his current employer. Andy Palmer joined Nissan back in 1991 and last year he was named Nissan’s global No.3 executive, behind Carlos Ghosn and Hiroto Saikawa.

Some of his pet projects at Nissan were the Leaf electric vehicle, the NV200 New York taxi as well as the push for autonomous vehicles. Aston Martin has been without a CEO since Ulrich Bez stepped down last November, after turning 70.

A statement from the shareholder board of Aston Martin said, “We’re delighted that Andy will join us as our new CEO at this important time at Aston Martin. Andy’s wealth of experience on the global automotive stage in marketing and sales, engineering and technology, and luxury and brand management will be instrumental in taking Aston Martin forward through its most significant and ambitious period of investment to date.” [source: Aston Martin]
