McLaren Racing CEO Zach Brown said: “Communication has never been more important than it is today as we strive to deliver on our ambitious growth plans.
Steve has a fantastic background in sports and government communications which will be invaluable to us on related matters. I know he will be a great fit for the team and look forward to seeing him come and help create a bright future for McLaren Racing.”
