FISKER AUTOMOTIVE BIO

HENRIK FISKER: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER



With the creation of Fisker Automotive, Inc., Danish-born Henrik Fisker, 45, has fulfilled a lifelong dream of designing and creating a range of beautiful cars that make environmental sense without compromise. In 20 years of auto design, Fisker has left his thumbprint on some of the most highly regarded automobiles. His creations range from the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage to the Fisker Tramonto and Fisker Latigo CS coachbuilt automobiles.

In 2005, Henrik Fisker launched Fisker Coachbuild, LLC with partner Bernhard
Koehler, where they revived the lost art of coachbuilding by combining beautiful design with existing world-class engineering. The result was the creation of the Fisker Tramonto, a two-seat convertible sports car, and the Fisker Latigo CS, an elegant coupe.

From 2001 to 2005 Fisker held prominent positions at Ford Motor Company. He was Creative Director for Ingeni, Ford’s London-based design and creativity center, Board of Directors member and Design Director for Aston Martin, and Director of Ford’s Global Advanced Design Studio (CAPC) in Irvine, California. Designed under his direction were the Lincoln Zephyr concept -- now in production -- and the Shelby GR1, showcased at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show.

In January 2001 Fisker became President and Chief Executive Officer of BMW’s California-based industrial design subsidiary, Designworks/USA.

Some of his most notable works include the Z07 concept (1997) and the Z8 roadster (1999). Upon graduating from The Art Center College of Design in 1989, Fisker began his career in Germany at BMW’s advanced design studio, BMW Technick GmbH.
