McLaren Racing CEO ZAK BROWN told THE DAILY this morning, “Sales and marketing is a critical piece for McLaren, so to bring on someone of Mark Waller’s caliber, stature and experience, having been at what is recognized as the world’s most successful sport in the NFL for over a decade -- and he was the former CMO of Diageo so he knows how to lead big global luxury brands like McLaren -- it’s a real win to get someone of his talent and pedigree to lead the marketing department” (Adam Stern, THE DAILY).
