USA: Ford confirms Leclair to succeed Gilmour as CFO

As expected, Ford Motor on Thursday named Don Leclair a group vice president and the company’s chief financial officer, succeeding Allan Gilmour, who remains vice chairman.

Ford’s directors also elected Jim Gouin [pronounced Gway] a company vice president and controller, replacing Leclair. Gouin has been controller for North America since November 2001. The appointments are effective from August 1.

Vice chairman Carl Reichardt’s retirement, which was announced on June 16, also occurs on August 1.

Leclair, 51, will report to Gilmour. Those reporting to Leclair are Gouin; Malcolm Macdonald, vice president and treasurer; and Barbara Gasper, vice president, investor relations.

In addition to finance, Gilmour has responsibility for corporate affairs, human resources, the general auditor’s office, Ford’s dealer policy board and Ford Credit.

Leclair has been the company’s controller since November 1, 2001 having previously served as controller for North America. He was also the controller of global product development and manufacturing and Ford Australia.

He joined the company in 1976 as a financial analyst at the Lorain assembly plant and has held various leadership positions in product development, manufacturing and finance.

Gouin, 43, joined Ford in 1979 as an accounts payable clerk. He has held finance positions in North America automotive operations, vehicle operations and marketing and sales.
