Yeah, he just didn't get it done.

Bottom line, neither did Mark Fields for that matter.

Wishing Jim Farley much luck and hoping he can move the enterprise forward.

Trucks are #1 in the world, Bronco is coming, Mach E, etc., lots of strong pockets and opportunities.

Would be nice to see something approaching Alan Mulally's track record, price per share increase, etc. downstream.

Awaiting our members input who are/were on the inside, their insight is always interesting and appreciated here.

Mulally was a business man ......Since then its been a mess.
Wishing Farley the best, ONCE THEY MERGE into VOLKSWAGON, The quality and product line will come up to current world needs.

I agree, Hackett was from another era.....
Its all about computer program copyrights and software, a car in the picture comes last.
Wish Farley the best but they need the above or they cant move forward.
Hope he can do it...

LOL! :cool:

Accurate but a tad short on detail.

None needed, I understand.

In advance of today's announcement, I had heard that the mahogany walls from the 11th floor conference rooms were on their way back to WHQ.

Amen! Better that they removed him sooner than later! He wasn’t a Car Man by any means!

I hear they are giving him some filing cabinets as a retirement gift.

Being from the furniture industry, Hackett brought to Ford some of Ikea’s philosophy - ‘some assembly required’. Ford has got eaten up by warranty claims since he stepped in.

Does this mean Ford is back in the car business?
