New CFO as Ford reshuffles management team

In a series of leadership changes, motor manufacturing giant Ford has announced the appointment of Allan Gilmour, its ex-vice chairman, as new chief financial officer.

Gilmour, in addition to taking on the financial control of the world’s sixth biggest car manufacturer, will also take on his former role as VC.

Incumbent CFO Martin Inglis has been appointed as group vice president of business strategy. The changes are with immediate effect.

Gilmour has been at Ford since 1960, when he joined as a financial analyst and was previously CFO of the Ford Motor Credit Company.

Other changes will see David Thursfield, currently president and CEO of Ford Europe, becomes group vice president of International Operations and Global Purchasing on 1 August.

Bill Ford, chairman and chief executive officer said the management changes strengthened the company ‘in several key areas by making the best use of the individual talent available’.
