Rumors shape the automotive industry. Insiders are always sharing secrets, gossip and assumptions.
Key West Ford is happy to report, however, that one particular assumption has proven to be false.
Alan Mulally - Chief Executive Officer of Ford, noted for transforming declining market shares into powerhouse performers - is not abandoning the second largest automaker in North America. Speculations have swirled about Mulally leaving Ford to join the Microsoft team. A statement released in January 2014, however, dismissed these claims.
“I have no other plans to do anything other than serve Ford,” said Mulally, effectively quashing concerns.
Mulally began his Ford career in 2006, after serving as an engineer and program manager for the Boeing company. At the time the automaker was known only for waning sales. Mulally changed this, however, by introducing a fleet of new vehicles, eliminating unnecessary expenses and redefining the North American brand.
Through his dedication Ford experienced a series of profitable quarters, once again becoming a premier manufacturer and trend-setter.
Key West Ford is pleased that Alan Mulally will remain a vital - and vocal - figure in the automotive industry. We’re excited to see how he will continue to shape the market for many years to come.
