McLaren has announced its new Design Director, with the title to appear on the office door of Rob Melville.

Melville replaces Frank Stephenson who has departed to take up a roll with MINI, with Melville having worked for McLaren since 2009.

The new design boss has already penned McLaren’s Sports Series and second-generation Super Series, and will commence his new role immediately.

Melville makes the step up from Chief Designer, and will continue to report to Chief Operating Officer, Dr Jens Ludmann.

“I am thrilled to be given the title of Design Director for McLaren Automotive,” Melville said.

“I remember when I got the call to come and join McLaren back in 2009 and the joy I felt then is the same today. We have developed a fantastic design team and have integrated a design philosophy that I feel passionately about. I have always believed that great design tells a great story and that is what we do here at McLaren. I’m incredibly proud.”

Melville’s previous roles include stints with General Motors and Jaguar Land Rover.

McLaren confirmed that Stephenson had left the company, wishing him well with his new venture.
