- Experienced luxury automotive leader to spearhead Aston Martin’s growth and organisation in its largest market
- Dealer network and business growth expert to build on customer experience, operational structure, and distribution of the brand in North America
- Appointment follows Aston Martin The Americas relocation to New York City and comes ahead of the opening of its new flagship brand experience centre next year
8 November 2022, New York City: Aston Martin Lagonda is delighted to announce the appointment of luxury automotive leader and dealer network expert Tony Joseph as the company’s Regional President for the Americas.
Joseph brings to Aston Martin more than 25 years’ experience in the luxury segment and joins the company from his previous position as President of McLaren Group in North America. He will take over the responsibilities of Adam Chamberlain, who is leaving the company.
Having enjoyed a near 13-year career with McLaren, Joseph initially introduced and launched the brand in North America, significantly growing its revenues and dealer network to make up more than 40% of the company’s annual global sales. The American also led the expansion of the brand’s US operations, including its successful relocation to Dallas, Texas. He will now seek to build on the recent move of Aston Martin’s regional headquarters to New York City, and spearhead the opening of a world-leading, ultra-luxury brand experience centre in the heart of Midtown Manhattan next year.
Joseph’s career includes a six-year spell as Sales Director of Ferrari North America and extensive senior experience within Porsche’s dealer network. He is a graduate of Western Michigan University.
Amedeo Felisa, Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin, said: “As our largest market, the Americas carries huge importance to Aston Martin and our future success, with a clear strategy to accelerate growth and capitalise on the incredibly strong demand from luxury American consumers.
“With his exceptional track record in the luxury sector and strong reputation and experience across the dealer network, I am delighted to welcome Tony to lead our next phase of growth in the Americas. He joins at an exciting and transformative time for Aston Martin The Americas.
“I would also like to thank Adam Chamberlain for his work over the last year and wish him the very best for the future.”
Tony Joseph, Regional President of Aston Martin, said: “I am delighted to be joining Aston Martin at an immensely exciting time for the brand. With a clear strategy, thrilling new products, and unrivalled affinity amongst luxury customers, I believe there is huge growth potential in the Americas for Aston Martin.
“I look forward to working with colleagues both here in the US and globally to realise that opportunity, with a collective ambition to strengthen our brand, enhance our customer experience and expand our operations and distribution throughout the region.”
