Ferrari man joins autonomous start-up

Autonomous car start-up, Zoox has appointed ex-Ferrari executive Corrado Lanzone, former operations director of Ferrari SpA’s racing division.

Corrado, vice president of manufacturing operations at the California-based company, has been hired to help Zoox ‘execute on our ambition to deliver autonomous mobility, without compromise.’

Corrado previously spent two-decades at Scuderia Ferrari, where he oversaw manufacturing, purchasing, quality assurance and managed relationships with tier-one suppliers. He also contributed to a team that won eight Formula One World Constructors’ Championships and six World Drivers’ Championships.

In April, Zoox appointed former top US safety regulator Mark Rosekind as its chief safety innovation officer.
