Matthew CARTER

Chief Executive Officer of Lotus F1

Matthew graduated from Bradford University in 1996 with a Management and Engineering degree. Following University, Matthew focussed on running his own company, namely buying businesses before adding value to them and then selling on. In 2010, Matthew met and joined Lotus F1 Team shareholder, Andy Ruhan, at Bridgehouse Capital. Within his role, he assisted on numerous purchases and ‘turn around deals’ as well as running a number of existing businesses.


Matthew joined Lotus F1 Team as CEO in January 2014 to oversee the transition of a team punching well above its weight into a genuine and consistent title challenger, and to build upon the foundations laid in the last few years. Matthew’s professional focus is on maintaining the team’s unique approach to F1, delivering better return on investment for partners and to implement a clear process for managing expectations from partners, staff and fans combined.
