Lotus has appointed John Paul Gregory as head of exterior design at the Lotus Tech Creative Center in Coventry, UK. The design center team, led by Ben Payne, will be responsible for the creation of the all-electric range of new vehicles, working closely with the design team at Hethel (UK) headquarters, led by Russell Carr.
John Paul previously worked for Aston Martin and Bentley, where he was responsible for the design of much of the current model range. Ben Payne said: “John Paul is a world-class talent with a proven track record in creativity, communication and people management. His appointment comes at a pivotal time as we take our business to the next level.”
“Lotus is a brand that has already begun the transition to the future as a truly global brand. With an iconic history to honor, I look forward to working with Ben Payne and the team to help shape the next chapter of this brand,” said John Paul Gregory.
