The former chief of a sports car manufacturer has vowed to fight his removal from the board of the company his grandfather founded.
Charles Morgan has said he is to appeal against the decision by Morgan Motor Company, based in Malvern, Worcestershire, which said he would no longer be part of the managing team or the board of directors at Morgan Technologies, which is a subsidiary of the main company.
Mr Morgan became managing director in 2010, replacing Alan Garnett. Before that, founder Henry Morgan ran the company until his death in 1959. Charles’ father Peter Morgan then took over until 2003.
Earlier this year, Charles Morgan stepped down as the managing director, and became ambassador for the brand set up by his grandfather in 1910.
The Morgan company outlined the position, stating Charles Morgan was no longer part of the business, but remained a shareholder.
Charles Morgan responded to the announcement by his former company in Autocar.
The company is on course for record-breaking sales of 1,200 this year.
