On Wednesday, British luxury carmaker Aston Martin Lagonda named Amedeo Felisa as its new chief executive officer, succeeding Tobias Moers. Felisa is the former boss of Ferrari NV.

Aston Martin said that Felisa is currently a non-executive director of the company and a veteran in the automotive industry. He will be appointed as executive director with immediate effect.

Aston Martin reported a wider pretax loss of 111.6 million pounds ($139.15 million) for the first quarter, compared to 42.2 million pounds a year earlier.

Aston also announced Roberto Fedeli, considered the creator of Ferrari’s first hybrid supercar, as its chief technical officer.

“To deliver the next-generation sports cars, and lead the way to electrification, these two appointments will significantly strengthen the senior leadership team,” the company said.
