“Adam joined Williams in 2006 as Chief Executive Officer.

I have now asked him to step up to Chairman in my place to give him both the responsibility and the authority to ensure the good running of all aspects of the team and the company.”

“It is both a great honour and a big responsibility to take over Frank‚Äôs role as Chairman of Williams. Frank remains our controlling shareholder and Team Principal and he will always be the name, the face and the inspiration of this team. My aspiration is to ensure that the team and the company are run to the high standards that Frank and Patrick Head have always demanded, both on and off the track. In this, I am fortunate to count on dedicated partners, a strong board and, above all, a great team of dedicated and talented people at Grove,” said Parr.

“I am also pleased to announce that Alex Burns steps up from the role of Chief Operating Officer to that of Chief Executive Officer. In addition to his responsibilities for the production side of Williams F1, Alex chairs Williams Hybrid Power Limited and the Williams Technology Centre in Qatar,” he added.
