Mark Farries Appointed Group Lotus Chief Financial Officer

Group Lotus announces that Mark Farries has been appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO), replacing incumbent, Robert Gong, who is returning to Geely’s HQ in China (Lotus majority shareholder). 

Farries, 44, joined Lotus earlier this year as Head of Commercial Finance. He brings a wealth of international experience from across the automotive business, having worked for Bentley, Jaguar Land Rover, and most recently within the Geely group at LEVC.

Commenting on his appointment, Mark said: “The transformation of Lotus is well under way and the period ahead is going to be hugely busy and exciting for all involved. I’m delighted to be appointed CFO at this pivotal time in this iconic brand’s development. My thanks to Robert Gong who I’ll be replacing as he resumes responsibilities at Geely.”

Born in Coventry, Mark has spent his career working with some of the biggest brands in the automotive industry, with multiple positions held overseas before returning to the UK where he is now based.
