Ford shuf­fles man­age­ment team

Cape Breton Post - - Business -

Ford’s new CEO is shak­ing up the com­pany’s se­nior man­age­ment.

The Dear­born, Michi­gan, au­tomaker named a new head of global prod­uct de­vel­op­ment Thurs­day, as well as new heads of its op­er­a­tions in North Amer­ica, Europe and Asia.

Among the big­gest changes is the re­hir­ing of Sherif Marakby, a long­time Ford ex­ec­u­tive who was head of Uber’s global ve­hi­cle pro­grams for a year un­til he quit that job last month.

Marakby is re­turn­ing to Ford to lead its ef­forts in self-driv­ing and elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

“The lead­er­ship changes we are an­nounc­ing to­day across our global busi­ness are im­por­tant as we fos­ter even greater team­work, ac­count­abil­ity and nim­ble de­ci­sion­mak­ing,” Ford CEO Jim Hack­ett said in a com­pany re­lease.

Hau Thai-Tang was named the head of global prod­uct de­vel­op­ment.

Thai-Tang was most re­cently in charge of global pur­chas­ing at Ford Mo­tor Co., and he will re­tain that role.
