McLAREN Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt has made the sudden announcement that he will leave the company, stepping down after eight years leading the supercar-maker.
The company has started searching for a replacement and in the meantime has appointed non-executive director Michael Macht to oversee technical and operational functions, while chairman Paul Walsh will lead sales, marketing and public relations.
Mr Flewitt joined McLaren as chief operating officer in June 2012, and became CEO just over a year later.
