Formula E appoints Jamie Reigle as new CEO
Jamie Reigle has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of Formula E with immediate effect, as part of the sport’s ambitious growth plans.
Reigle will take over responsibilities from founder and CEO, Alejandro Agag, who becomes Chairman of Formula E.
Agag will work in tandem with Reigle in his new role, retaining relationships with key sponsors, teams and long-standing partners such as the FIA, as well as existing host cities. Reigle will oversee the overall management of the company, day-to-day operations and the delivery of ambitious plans for growth on a global scale.
Reigle joins from the Los Angeles Rams, where he was as Executive Vice-President of Business Operations. Prior to working at the Los Angeles Rams, Canadian born Reigle spent a decade as a senior executive at Manchester United where he served as a member of the board of directors, oversaw global commercial activity, launched the club’s Asia Pacific operations and led the company’s initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange.
Agag commented: “With his [Jamie’s] addition to our existing executive team, we have an incredibly strong line-up to continue building and developing Formula E through our next growth cycle. I’ll be making the transition to Chairman and will work in tandem with Jamie to ensure that our vision and plans for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship are fulfilled.”
Reigle said: “I’m eager to plug in and work with Alejandro to continue to develop Formula E as the most exciting series in motorsport and a platform for the potential of the future of electric vehicles and sustainable mobility.”
