As a Ford-Lincoln-Mercury dealer, I hope the transition to new leadership at Ford Motor Co. is smooth.
I heard Nick Scheele speak at the annual dealer meeting in Orlando, Fla., and within three minutes, he earned my respect and admiration. He was a real car guy talking to car guys. I was touched by his honesty, dedication and forthrightness. I left that meeting rejuvenated.
Bill Ford Jr. won my respect years ago when an explosion at the Mustang plant in Dearborn, Mich., killed several employees. He was quickly on the scene to offer his support to employees and their families.
I have been a dealer for 10 years, and I am proud to represent the best vehicles in America. The Blue Oval is as much a way of life for me and my employees as it is for Ford Motor executives. Dealer relations with Ford Motor have been strained the last few years, and I hope the new management team makes improving dealer relations Job 1, along with vehicle quality.
It's time for us to get back to the business of building and selling best-in-class vehicles and providing world-class customer service. I, and surely all Ford Motor Co. dealers, stand behind Bill Ford and his new management team and look forward to another decade of Ford leadership in North America.
