Can Ford's New Boss Stage a Mulally-Like Comeback?.
Can Ford's New Boss Stage a Mulally-Like Comeback?
Corporate intrigue has been part of the DNA of Ford Motor Co. since the original Henry Ford figuratively beat down his son Edsel, Senior Editor Bill Koenig writes in a commentary. So, from a historical perspective, nobody should have been surprised when Chief Executive Officer Mark Field’s abrupt departure was announced May 22. The question is whether new boss Jim Hackett can emulate Alan Mulally, who ran Ford from 2006 to 2014. Mulally seemed to end the intrgue. It turned out he only neutralized it temporarily.
