CKL Developments has announced Mark Hews and Tim Mason as Joint Managing Directors of the historic racing and restoration firm.

Hews and Mason were already working at CKL as, respectively, Operations Director and Commercial Director.

Company founder Chris Keith-Lucas and outgoing Managing Director James Fraser will retain key roles in the business. Keith-Lucas will work a reduced four-day week, and Fraser stays on as a consultant.

Hews and Mason began their working partnership as part of the leadership team at Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists P&A Wood and have now spent over 10 years working together in the world of classic and race cars at the highest levels.

CKL Developments Chairman Stefan Ziegler said: ‘I am excited about the future for the company and I’m very happy that with Mark and Tim, we have two outstandingly qualified people to write the next chapter for our company. I do look forward to working more closely with them.

‘I would also like to take this opportunity to thank James for his efforts in completing the initial phase of the turnaround and we look forward to working with him in the future in a consultancy role.’

Mark Hews said: ‘I have been privileged to learn from two of the most knowledgeable experts in the classic car industry, Andrew Wood at P&A Wood and more recently Chris Keith-Lucas here at CKL Developments. To now have the opportunity to lead this business with Tim and continue working alongside Chris, absorbing his vast knowledge and experience is a challenge I am very much looking forward to.’

Tim Mason added: ‘I feel honoured to be taking on this role and advancing CKL Developments into the future. Mark and I see great opportunities to build on the foundations laid in recent years and are looking forward to working with the team here on this exciting journey.’
