With days to go until the ABB FIA Formula E Championships doubleheader season finale in New York City on July 14–15, DS Virgin Racing has appointed Sylvain Filippi as the team's managing director, effective immediately.
The France native, who previously held the position of chief operations officer in the team, was one of the founding members of the racing outfit.
“I’m very grateful for this opportunity and thank the team’s board and shareholders for their support and trust in me," Filippi said. "The current season may be drawing to a close, but we have a lot of exciting work ahead of us to prepare for Formula E’s important fifth season, and the whole team together with its partners and new majority shareholder Envision are very much looking forward to this.”
Filippi's appointment comes in the wake of DS Virgin Racing's former Team Principal Alex Tai ’s departure in June 2018.
