Formula E appoint new CEO to replace Alejandro Agag

Jamie Reigle has been announced as the new Formula E CEO, replacing Alejandro Agag, who has moved to the chairman role of the all-electric series.

Reigle comes into Formula E after a period as Executive Vice-President of Business Operations at American football team Los Angeles Rams.

Before that, he worked at Manchester United football club for over a decade, holding a number of different roles at the football giants.

"I'm delighted and honoured to be charged with leading Formula E through its next phase of development," Reagle said in a statement. "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."

Agag added: "I'd like to take this opportunity to officially welcome Jamie to the Formula E family. Jamie's wealth of experience working in sports properties across North America, Europe and Asia make him the best person for the job.

"With this 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."
