Jamie Reigle has been appointed the new CEO of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship as Alejandro Agag takes the role of Chairman.
With previous experience in both the Premier League and NFL, Jamie Reigle will take over the day-to-day activities of Formula E while also working alongside Alejandro Agag to deal with partner and sponsorship relationships.
Riegle has most recently been involved with the Los Angeles Rams as their Executive Vice-President of Business Operations and prior to that spent a decade with Manchester United as a senior executive on their board of directors.
In their press release this morning Formula E stated that the Canadian was chosen after a rigorous selection process, and that his commercial background as well as his experience in growing brands would complement the young and accomplished executive line-up at Formula E.
“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.”
Agag meanwhile stated “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 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.”
