Haymarket Worldwide chief executive, Tony Schulp, is joining Prodrive as group commercial director.

This is a new role within Prodrive which will see him overseeing the company's commercial strategy for its global $250 million motorsport and automotive technology businesses. As part of this, Schulp will be responsible for the commercial activities for Prodrive's new Formula one programme.

Schulp will report directly to Prodrive chairman and chief executive, David Richards. Richards said "I have known Tony for many years and have always admired his energy and enthusiasm, which has shown in the products that he and his colleagues at Haymarket have created. I believe he is just what Prodrive needs at this important stage in our development, when we are about to embark on perhaps our greatest venture yet, Forumula One."

Schulp has been with Haymarket for 29 years, having joined initially as a sales executive on Autosport magazine in 1978. He said: "It had to be a very special job to tempt me to leave Haymarket after all this time. This is a great opportunity to work in the motorsport world at the highest level with a company that I have known and respected for many years."

Schulp will join Prodrive at the end of March.
