Canadian-born Jamie Reigle has been selected to take over Alejandro Agag’s role as Chief Executive Officer of Formula E, as Agag moves into his new role as chairman.
Reigle’s previous experience includes being on the board of directors for the Premiere League football team Manchester United, as well as being the executive vice-president of business operations at the Los Angeles Rams NFL team.
“I’m delighted and honoured to be charged with leading Formula E through its next phase of development.” Explained 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.”
Whilst Reigle will oversee day-to-day responsibilities and management of Formula E, Agag and deputy CEO Alberto Longo will be working in tandem with him to negotiate deals with sponsors, teams, partners and host cities.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to officially welcome Jamie to the Formula E family.” Agag stated. “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.”
Formula E’s aim as a company is to continue the impressive upward trend of growth that it has experienced over the past few years; with Agag switching focus to preparations for the inaugural season of the offroad SUV EV championship Extreme E in 2021, Reigle will become the new face of Formula E’s management.
