So I guess Jim Hackett is taking over the position seeing that the article calls his president and CEO?

RAJ NAIR, FORD’S PRESIDENT OF NORTH AMERICA, EXITS COMPANY


DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 21, 2018 – Ford Motor Company today announced that Raj Nair, executive vice president and president, North America, is departing from Ford effective immediately.

The decision follows a recent internal investigation into reports of inappropriate behavior. The review determined certain behavior by Nair was inconsistent with the company’s code of conduct.

“We made this decision after a thorough review and careful consideration,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Hackett. “Ford is deeply committed to providing and nurturing a safe and respectful culture and we expect our leaders to fully uphold these values.”

Said Nair: “I sincerely regret that there have been instances where I have not exhibited leadership behaviors consistent with the principles that the Company and I have always espoused. I continue to have the utmost faith in the people of Ford Motor Company and wish them continued success in the future.”

Nair has been president of Ford North America since June 1, 2017. Prior to that, he served as Ford’s head of global product development and chief technical officer.


Nair’s replacement will be subject to an announcement in the near future.

He has. The Continental is attracting the right customers and the satisfaction with it is high. The Nautilus is a great move in that segment. The new Navigator will definitely challenge the Escalade. So, yes, he has done well.

Fair enough...but the only way for that brand to go was up...yes, changing to 'regular' names was good. And Continental has done ok. But the trick is sustaining that.

I'll be curious to see the direction he takes the brand for sure.

The Continental was quite obviously a "Hail Mary" and as a stop-gap it's pretty darned good. The Nautilus is a great recasting. If CD6 truly is truly an RWD platform, it follows that a new Lincoln Explorer with RWD would be great as would a next-generation Continental with RWD.
