Formula One team Williams have announced two inclusions to the company’s board of directors with the appointments of Nick Rose and Louise Evans.

Rose joins Toto Wolff, Mike O’Driscoll and Eddie Charlton as the company’s fourth non-executive director and will chair the Audit Committee.

Evans steps up to finance director from her current position as the group’s head of finance. They will both join with immediate effect.

Williams chairman Adam Parr, said: “I am delighted to welcome Nick and Louise to our Board. As a highly experienced finance professional, and a member of the Board of two of Britain’s largest listed companies, Nick will chair our Audit Committee.

“As a businessman with experience in the automotive, consumer and luxury sectors, he will be an invaluable asset for Williams F1. Since joining Williams eight years ago, Louise has implemented the highest standards of financial control and reporting and she played a key role in enabling the company to achieve a listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange earlier this year.

“The combination of our executive and non-executive directors means we now have a tremendous and balanced Board which can provide the Company and our shareholders with the highest standards of leadership and governance.”
