Hyundai Motor Group has implemented the largest reshuffle in its history, announcing five new presidents and appointing new CEOs for two Hyundai companies. One of the appointments was former Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul who has been named as Hyundai Motorsport president.
“Firstly, I must say thank you to Sean Kim for bringing me to Hyundai Motorsport and to Hyundai for the trust they have shown in me for this new role,” said Abiteboul.
“We have clear targets in the categories where we are competing. We are also tasked with the transformation of Hyundai Motorsport to reflect the evolution of Hyundai Motor Company and to continue to be a relevant platform for the N brand and products.
“We know there is work to be done, but we enjoy a team of dedicated, talented, and multi-cultural individuals that I will strive to guide with the same values of respect and trust as Sean did during his tenure.
