Before joining Williams, Craig co-founded Oxford Applied Technologies, an engineering consultancy specializing in bringing sustainable transport projects to market.

In his new role as Managing Director of Williams Advanced Engineering, Craig Wilson will have overall operational and delivery responsibility for existing projects within the company (which includes the Williams Formula One team). He will oversee all business development activity and take a strategic lead as the company continues to commercialize Williams’ F1-derived technology and knowhow for the motorsport, automotive, transport, and energy sectors. Before joining Williams, Wilson co-founded Oxford Applied Technologies, an engineering consultancy specializing in bringing sustainable transport projects to market. His previous roles include six years based in Melbourne as Chief Executive Officer of Walkinshaw Performance, running successful GM-Holden factory racing teams in the Australian V8 Supercar Championship and securing two Team and Drivers Championships and three Bathhurst wins. This coincided with a directorship with Holden Special Vehicles, for which he jointly led the engineering and strategic direction of the high-performance vehicle manufacturer. Wilson also spent over a decade at TWR Group, six of those as Managing Director, and oversaw projects such as the Aston Martin DB7, Volvo C70, Renault Sport Clio V6, and concept designs of the Bugatti Veyron, Aston Martin Vanquish, and Audi RS4.
