McLaren confirms Zak Brown as new executive director

McLaren have named Zak Brown as the team’s new executive director as part of a shake-up following the departure of Ron Dennis. Start date set to be finalized next month.

Brown’s appointment is part of a restructuring programme that will align the Group’s commercial and strategic operations in Formula 1.

The news follows last week’s announcement that Ron Dennis had been forced to relinquish his position as MTG chairman and CEO following a meeting of shareholders.

Brown was previously mentioned as a possibly replacement for Dennis in the open CEO role, however, that search will continue, McLaren confirmed today. Brown is a former Formula Three racer and the founder of motorsport marketing agency Just Marketing International, which has worked with McLaren and a number of other high-profile clients to form sponsorship deals and partnerships that ultimately keep pricey F1 efforts running.

Here is the full Interview of Zak Brown.
