Lynn Calder appointed new CEO to lead INEOS Automotive

Lynn Calder has been appointed as CEO of INEOS Automotive and will take up her new role with immediate effect after six years in the INEOS Group, including multiple CEO positions. She was formerly in private equity.

Lynn’s appointment completes a new, strengthened leadership team for INEOS Automotive, marking the transition from engineering project to commercial business. Hans-Peter Pessler - formerly a senior executive from Magna Steyr in Austria that manufactured the G-Wagon for Mercedes - takes up a new permanent role as COO of INEOS Automotive, responsible for all engineering and operations. Phillippe Steyer remains as President of INEOS Automotive SAS, responsible for manufacturing, SHE (Safety, Health and Environmental management) and supply chain.

Ashley Reed, Chairman of INEOS Automotive Limited said: “We’re in the automotive industry for the long haul. The team has done a great job leading the engineering programme and overseeing the set-up of manufacturing. Now, as it goes into full commercial mode, Lynn and Hans-Peter will take us forward in the next stage of the company’s development.”

“It’s an exciting time to be taking the reins,” said Lynn. “The team and the Grenadier itself have come a long way, and yet we’re still only at the beginning of creating a global automotive business. I love a challenge, and with bold plans for the future, I’m looking forward to the adventure ahead.”

Order books for the Grenadier are now open and production has commenced. To find out more about Grenadier prices, technical specifications, and options, visit
