Los Angeles Rams executive Jamie Reigle is poised to become the new Formula E chief executive, according to reports.
Reigle is currently the executive vice president of business operations for the National Football League team. He previously worked as Manchester United’s group commercial director.
The 41-year-old Canadian is in line to replace Alejandro Agag, who became Formula E chairman in December 2018 and has remained chief executive while a successor has been sought.
According to e-racing365, Reigle’s expected appointment is “at the behest of Liberty Global”, which holds a 24-per-cent equity stake in the electric car-racing series. Liberty Global is a sister corporation to Formula One owners Liberty Media.
Formula E is, meanwhile, in “advanced” talks over a race deal for Jakarta.
