Ford Motor Co. said on Friday that Martin Inglis, group vice president of business strategy, and William Cosgrove, vice president, CFO and chief of staff for the Premier Automotive Group, will retire from the company March 1.
Ford said it does not plan to replace Inglis or Cosgrove. Most of Cosgrove's duties were taken up by Robert Shanks, who will be PAG's CFO. Most of Inglis' responsibilities will be distributed among existing Ford executives.
Inglis, 52, became group vice president in May 2002. He was responsible for Ford's business strategy, mergers and acquisitions and the Hertz rental car business.
Inglis previously was CFO. He joined Ford in 1971 and has worked for the company in various posts.
Cosgrove, 57, has had his current position in PAG since July 1999. He was previously Ford's vice president for business and product strategy. Cosgrove, a 31-year Ford employee, was responsible for leading the automaker's Land Rover and Volvo Car acquisitions and for helping to create PAG.

My next Ford.....
