Jamie Reigle has been named as new Chief Executive Officer of Formula E following Alejandro Agag’s move to become the series’ Chairman.
Reigle has an impressive résumé to his name, having previously worked as a senior executive for Manchester United Football Club and more recently as the Executive Vice President of Business Operations at the Los Angeles Rams in the National Football League.
The Canadian will now spearhead Formula E’s management in Agag’s old position as he looks to further develop the all-electric series, with help from the former CEO as the brand looks to maintain relationships with the series’ sponsors, partners and teams.
“I’m delighted and honoured to be charged with leading Formula E through its next phase of development,” said Reigle.
“I’ve followed the championship from inception and admired the global sports platform Alejandro and his team have created in short order.
“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.”
Stepping into a new role as Chairman of the series, Agag welcomed the arrival of Reigle to the paddock and praised his prior work as the main factor for the recruitment of the Canadian.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to officially welcome Jamie to the Formula E family,” said Agag.
“Jamie’s wealth of experience working in sports properties across North America, Europe and Asia make him the best person for the job.
“With his 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.”
