Cosworth pays tribute to Kevin Kalkhoven

3 February 2022

 

Cosworth has paid tribute to the company’s former COB Kevin Kalkhoven, who sadly passed away last month, at the age of 77, following a recent illness.

Kevin proved an influential figure in repositioning Cosworth from a motorsport powerhouse into a growing and profitable, transportation technology business up to his resignation as Director and Chairman of the Board on the 15th October last year at which time Hal Reisiger was elected Chairman.

Through his passion for the Cosworth brand, Kalkhoven worked tirelessly to ensure that the business not only retained its relevancy in the motorsport and automotive sectors, but also expanded into adjacent markets, such as marine, defence and aerospace.

He was also instrumental in Cosworth expanding its global footprint with an eye on international market trends. He possessed a visionary outlook that Cosworth’s shareholders have pledged to continue for the future continued growth of the business.

Cosworth extends its condolences to Kevin’s family and loved ones and respect their wishes for privacy at this difficult time.

Hal Reisiger, CEO and Chairman of Cosworth, said: “We were incredibly saddened to learn that Kevin passed away following his recent period of illness. Since his involvement with Cosworth in 2004, he had been a key source of inspiration for the business. His passion for motorsport is well documented, but he was also a visionary and pioneer of future technology. He was a leading force behind Cosworth’s evolution into a transportation technology business – and we honour his contribution, which will undoubtedly have a long-lasting beneficial legacy.

On behalf of everyone at Cosworth, I send my sincere condolences to Kevin’s wife and family at this understandably difficult time”.
