KELLEY GONE FROM LINCOLN MERCURY
Another hire from the Jac Nasser tenure is done at Ford Motor Company.
Brian Kelley, 41, has left the stewardship of Lincoln Mercury to head a logistics
company, Reuters reports. Kelley, 41, lasted at L-M for about nine months as
the division head; he had joined Ford in 1999 as head of marketing, sales
and service. He'll be replaced by Darryl Hazel, VP of consumer services.
Earlier this year, Ford decided to move Lincoln Mercury back from under the Premier
Automotive Group banner to the Ford operations, but the brands remain housed
in southern California alongside the British brands and Volvo.
