Why Is Outgoing Ford CEO Alan Mulally So Happy?

Among the 50 Best Global Green Brands, car giants occupy the top four positions in the list, led by Ford, Toyota, Honda, and Nissan. For the past 3 years, Toyota, the world’s biggest maker of motor vehicles has been ranked number one. This year, however, it’s Ford.

The 8-year chief executive of Ford, Alan Mulally should be a very happy man, who engineered the car giant’s turnaround and helped avoid the bankruptcies and bailouts.

Alan is set to step down from the lead role July 1, Mark Fields, the current chief operating officer is taking over as CEO of the U.S.’s second-largest automaker.

“I’m going to stay close to Ford going forward,” Alan said in an interview with Matt Miller on Bloomberg Television. Mark would like to call me and I said, ‘Absolutely, any time.’”

“It’s served everybody well,” Alan said in the interview. “And I think Mark is going to continue those major processes.”

He created a collaborative culture, gathering top executives for a mandatory meeting every Thursday morning, where they were required to hash out problems and find solutions together.
