CEO + CEO: Perspectives on Excellence is a series of interviews that give you the opportunity to listen to James Gorman talk with some of the most influential leaders in business.
Our fifth installment of Perspectives on Excellence features Alan Mulally, President and Chairman of Ford Motor Company. Alan began his career at Ford in 2006 after 37 years with Boeing, where he was responsible for all of the company's commercial airplane programs. Largely accredited with saving Ford, Mulally was the subject of the recently published book, American Icon: Alan Mulally and the Fight to Save Ford Motor Company, which chronicles his efforts to break down silos in order to unite Ford under one brand to avoid bankruptcy and drive the company back to profitability. Mulally has been named "Businessperson of the Year" by Fortune, one of "The World's Most Influential People" by TIME, and "Industry Leader of the Year" by Automotive News, in addition to serving on President Obama's Export Council.
In response to the Hurricane Sandy efforts, Morgan Stanley and Ford co-contributed a Ford Transit Connect vehicle to the American Red Cross.
