To the Editor:No doubt there will be many comments on Jacques Nasser’s departure from Ford Motor Co., and I think the majority will be negative.
Having spent 48 years in the European manufacturer side of the business and having close relations with most of the multinationals, I have often been surprised how the sentiments and opinions about one’s superiors change overnight.
There may have been negative or deprecating insinuations from the media, but the full force of damaging comments now comes to the surface. I suppose that one should not bite the hand that feeds until it feeds you no longer.
What begs the question is this: If Nasser was such a bad manager, the inexperienced young Mr. Ford must really be scared of him to insist on such a long noncompetition clause in return for a “generous” parting agreement. I expect Nasser will laugh all the way to the bank.
