All You Need to Know About the New CEO of McLaren, Michael Lieters

Effective from July 1st, 2022, McLaren has announced its new CEO, Michael Lieters. Michael Lieters is an experienced guy to step into McLaren as a chief operating officer. He has an in-hand experience with Ferrari as technology boss.

In 2021, Michael stepped down from Ferrari as a leading figure. Along with him, two other influential figures left the Italian brand. The ‘grand resignation’ came after the ‘reverse strategy of Ferrari. The giant automaker had claimed that they were looking to structure “a new stubborn organizational skeleton that will exclusively adhere to the grand goals of Ferrari.”

Car Magazine / Lieters had resigned from Ferrari last year in the wake of the “organizational shift” of the Italian brand.

Michael’s resigned senior employees were the leading chief manufacturing officer Vincenzo Regazzoni and chief brand officer Nicola Boari. Though the giant automaker seemingly ‘lost’ its long-term employees and influential figures, it did not affect them much.

Michael Lieters, who is basically from Germany, has also served at Porsche as well – apart from Ferrari. For a decent amount of time, he had played a key role in the marketing and brand development of Porsche Cayenne – serving as the leading production and development officer.

A statement from McLaren indicates that Lieters will be serving in the technology department of McLaren based in Rotherham. At the same time, he will be supervising and overseeing McLaren’s production and development throughout the region.

Nevertheless, Leiter’s new designation as the CEO of Mclaren comes along with a sweet coincidence. The global auto manufacturer is likely to launch the first-ever series of Woking, McLaren Artura. With the hybrid supercar hitting the market, Michael’s responsibility as the CEO is expected to be crucial. As per the statement from McLaren, the global automaker is “pretty certain that he (Lieters) will exhibit his abundant experience to take the brand to a whole new level.”
