Patrick Louis steps down as Lotus CEO
7 January 2014 – Lotus will feature an altered management structure in 2014, with Patrick Louis resigning as CEO.

Louis is set to tackle a new role with Genii Automotive, although he will keep his place on the Lotus board.
Matthew Carter has inherited the position of Lotus team CEO following Louis' decision to depart.
