Mark Wilson Appointed CFO of Verge Motorcycles

Wilson will lead the scaling up of the company.

Electric superbike pioneer Verge Motorcycles has appointed a new chief financial officer to scale up the company’s international business. Mark Wilson is a deeply experienced executive in the automotive industry having most recently served as executive vice president and chief financial officer for Aston Martin Lagonda Plc and before that McLaren Automotive. Wilson has more than 20 years of experience in the automotive industry and has accumulated strong expertise in raising funding and growing international operations. The appointment comes at a critical time for Verge, which is just beginning to expand its operations into the U.S. market and globally.

“Verge’s unique innovation, state-of-the-art design and ambitious vision is attracting enormous interest amongst international investors despite the challenging economic environment. This is a pivotal moment for the company as it scales up to meet growing customer demand globally. With an order book running well into next year, Verge is primed to exert leadership in the electric superbike category. I’m thrilled to join such an exciting and dynamic business,” said Wilson, who has served as an advisor on the Verge Motorcycles Advisory Board since March.

Verge Motorcycles has invested heavily in product development to secure its place as a pioneer of electric riding.

“Mark Wilson’s strong expertise and long experience in the auto industry is extremely valuable to Verge, especially at this stage of our growth. The company’s order book is growing at an accelerating pace, and with the help of future funding rounds, the company intends to ensure that delivery capacity is increased to meet the demand. Mark has unparalleled experience in all of these areas. The company is now entering a new era,” said Marko Lehtimäki, chief technology officer at Verge.
