US:Nissan's Ghosn spurned Ford executive position
Nissan's Ghosn spurned Ford executive position
Detroit Free Press
Carlos Ghosn, who led Nissan Motor Co. from losses to record profits, rejected an overture to join Ford Motor Co. for the second time in three years, people familiar with the situation said. Ghosn, 51, turned down becoming a top executive last month because the Ford family controls 40% of voting shares and could limit his influence. Ghosn, who runs Renault SA and Nissan, plans to improve the performance of the two companies. CEO Bill Ford first approached Ghosn in 2002 after he ousted CEO Jacques Nasser.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
