Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has announced the appointment of Mike Flewitt as Chairman of the Board. Flewitt’s arrival strengthens the senior leadership team of BAC as the company continues to experience exponential demand for its unique, ultra-driver-focussed, road-legal, single-seater Mono supercar.
Flewitt brings four decades of world-class automotive innovation, manufacturing and strategic management expertise to BAC at a seminal period in the technology-driven company’s growth, underpinned by a rapid scale-up plan. In 2023, BAC will introduce new models to its current Mono line-up and launch into new global markets. Innovative new technologies are also being developed.
Widely acknowledged by the global automotive industry as a consummate professional and accomplished, results-driven visionary, Flewitt led McLaren Automotive Limited from 2013 to 2021 after relinquishing his role as Vice President, Manufacturing with Ford of Europe.
During his tenure as CEO of McLaren Automotive, Flewitt spearheaded the launch of a full range of cars, facilitating in the process the rapid growth of the organisation and establishing it as one of the world’s leading supercar brands.
Flewitt’s background in successfully industrialising products and processes from concept to production will be pivotal as BAC embarks on its ambitious next-stage scale-up plan and new product development.
Commenting on his appointment as BAC Chairman, Mike Flewitt said: “I have long admired what Neill and Ian Briggs have achieved with BAC, and their unflinching determination to engineer one of the finest driving machines on the planet.
The single-seater Mono and Mono R supercars are extraordinary accomplishments that could have only been created by continuously pushing the boundaries of automotive technology.
“With BAC’s recent successful expansion across Europe, North America and Asia, the brand is rapidly expanding as a bona fide global player. Having been privileged to see BAC’s future growth plans and details of the new model line-up, I am honoured and excited in equal measure to accept Neill and Ian’s offer to join as Chairman and become part of the BAC story. And given that I started my automotive career on a production line down the road in Halewood, it feels incredible to come home to Liverpool.”
Commenting on Flewitt’s appointment as Chairman, Ian Briggs, BAC Co-Founder and Design Director said: “We are elated that an industry leader of Mike’s incredible calibre has joined BAC as Chairman. His appointment marks a pivotal moment in BAC’s history. Mike’s results-proven expertise and seasoned counsel will prove invaluable as we embark on the next stage of our strategic scale-up.”
Neill Briggs, BAC co-founder and Director of Product Development, added: “Mike brings the core strategic and operational competencies that are required, working with the board to deliver next-level financial successes and further international award-winning recognition. Equally important to everyone at BAC and our customers is the fact that Mike is a life-long car enthusiast and a passionate driver who understands the vast difference between ‘transportation’ and the sport of driving – and that is precisely what BAC stands for.”
