Aston Martin has struck another major blow when it comes to its recruitment campaign. This time, the British team has recruited Heath Cade who will be Chief People Officer for the team.
What makes it so special that Cade has been recruited by Aston Martin is the fact that he previously worked as the Human Resources Director at Red Bull Racing. It’s not the first time that Aston Martin has taken personnel away from the Austrian team. Dan Fallows and Andrew Alessi preceded him in doing so.
Team principal Otmar Szafnauer is pleased with the appointment of Cade: “The arrival of Heath Cade is our latest significant appointment as we continue to put the structure in place to allow Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team to deliver at the very highest level in the months and years ahead”, he told the Website of the British team.
Cade himself is happy with his move from Red Bull to Aston Martin: “There is a clear roadmap for success being laid out by the leadership and it is very motivating to see significant investment in both people and facilities.”
Aston Martin’s goal is to win the world title one day, and with the recent acquisitions behind the scenes, the team seems keen to achieve that goal as soon as possible. At the moment the title still seems far away. The team is seventh in the Constructors’ standings with 48 points.
