Hope she's not related to Jenny Craig... more "leaning" out of the business.

If Jim Hackett told me that the sky was blue, I'd wait for the next news conference.

Fordauthority
ó Aaron Brzozowski ó May 11, 2018


Ford Motor Company this week announced the appointment of Jeff Lemmer Ė a 31-year Ford veteran Ė to the role of Chief Information Officer. In his new role, Lemmer will report directly to Ford President of Mobility Marcy Klevorn, who held the CIO position herself from January, 2015 through May, 2017. He will be responsible for Fordís global IT services, including architecture, data centers, engineering, infrastructure, and IT business applications.

Jeff Lemmerís appointment as CIO comes at the same time that information technology takes on a more crucial role at Ford...

Jamal Hameedi Leaves Ford Performance for Jaguar SVO

see post #541^
Quote:
The Guy Responsible for Every Great Ford Performance Car Has Left for Jaguar Land Rover

Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance chief engineer from 2013 until last month, has left the blue oval for Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), according to his LinkedIn profile. A spokesperson for Ford Performance confirmed his departure in an email sent to Road & Track.

Hameedi was an important figure at Ford Performance, as he presided over development of the GT supercar, the Mustang Shelby GT350, the F-150 Raptor, Fiesta ST, and Focus ST and Focus RS. Prior to the creation of Ford Performance in 2013, Hameedi was chief engineer for Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) division starting in 2005, and was the program manager for the 2005-2006 Ford GT.

It's unclear why Hameedi decided to head to JLR. Ford did announce that it will stop selling most of its car lines in North America in favor of crossovers, but it's unknown if that was a contributor to his departure. If he stayed at Ford, Hameedi would still likely be busy. He'd be in charge of developing Ford Performance cars for other markets and hotter SUVs like the Edge ST and recently announced Explorer ST.

True! Methinks he knows something that we don't know. He is a car guy and he's leaving.

I'm sure that Ford has confident, capable and committed car guys waiting to fill his shoes. But they can be given a green, amber or red light. Wonder what light Hameedi saw.

Re: Fordís New CEO Hints at Ambitious Plans

"Ford's reorganization could include upwards of 24,000 job cuts, NBC News reported Monday (Oct 8). The automaker has not provided hard figures on the number of employees it will let go, but its leaders have said President Donald Trump's tariff war with China could impact the company's overhaul.

The NBC report cited a Morgan Stanley analysis that estimates a 12 percent reduction in Ford's global workforce, resulting in the loss of roughly 24,000 workers. Bob Shanks, Ford's chief financial officer, described the cutbacks as a "redesign" that would include its 70,000 white-collar employees."

https://www.nola.com/business/index....p_tariffs.html

From what I understand it is the steel costs that make up the $1Billion in losses for Ford as it relates to the TAX the US is charging Ford on steel from China. The rest of the losses has to do with Ford's plan itself by canceling over a third of it's product lineup and depending too heavily on China to support sales, and constricting market share globally. With NOTHING planed for at least 24 months.

When thinking of Ford today, it's hard to see the future in what they are planning, only a refreshed version of the past. But there are consumers who want things to stay the same.....and Ford will be there for them. Just not the younger, new generation of consumer.
