Ex-Williams F1 CEO Parr joins Cosworth
6 January 2014 – Former Williams F1 CEO Adam Parr has been appointed to the board at Cosworth, it has been announced.
Parr, who left the Williams F1 team in March 2012, had been tipped to succeed Sir Frank Williams as team principal. However, he quit to spend more time with his family and ‘pursue a better balance in his life’.
British newspaper, The Guardian, reports that Parr was one of three high-profile appointments made by Cosworth last week, along with Carl-Peter Forster, former chief executive of Tata Motors and Alan Donnelly a former MEP.
Cosworth ceased its involvement in F1 at the end of last year, having supplied engines to backmarkers, Marussia.
