British luxury carmaker Aston Martin on Monday named Kenneth Gregor, who was the former financial chief at Jaguar Land Rover, as its new chief financial officer, looking to tap experienced management to help revive the 107-year-old firm's fortunes.

Gregor, 53, will be tasked with helping with the turnaround of the company, which is cutting jobs and sports car production as it grapples with a deep first-quarter loss on a slump in sales due to the coronavirus outbreak.
