SUE SLAUGH­TER

Di­rec­tor of pur­chas­ing, Ford Europe

Auto Express - - The Brit List 2018 -

LAST year, Sue Slaugh­ter was a new en­try at num­ber 42 in the Brit List, as COO for trans­mis­sions firm Ge­trag. She rises five places in 2018 af­ter a spring re­turn to her long-time home, as di­rec­tor of pur­chas­ing for Ford of Europe – a role that will be cru­cial as the di­vi­sion strives to boost prof­its in the face of in­creas­ing com­mod­ity costs and the im­pact of Brexit. Bosses clearly iden­ti­fied Slaugh­ter’s strengths in this field; be­fore her time at Ge­trag, she’d been in charge of buy­ing com­po­nents for B-plat­form Fords, such as the Fi­esta.
