Williams have gone outside of motor racing to find a new Head of Marketing, after announcing that they have appointed the former vice president of brands for HJ Heinz to the role.
The team announced earlier this month that long serving team member Jim Wright was leaving his position after 12 years with the outfit.
His replacement will be Scott Garrett, who as well as Heinz has worked for the Publicis Group, J Walter Thompson, Nike and Saatchi & Saatchi.
Team boss Frank Williams said: "We are very much looking forward to harnessing Scott's considerable experience and expertise in our continuing efforts to better support our existing commercial partners, as well as helping us to attract new sponsors."
Garrett left Heinz last August after the company's decision to freeze its £25 million marketing budget. He then joined the mobile marketing company The Light Agency as its chief executive, aiming to expand its mobile phone based customer loyalty schemes.
