Mulally: Congress keynoter

Alan Mulally: Working to overhaul Ford's corporate culture.
DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally will be a keynote speaker here at the 32nd Automotive News World Congress on Tuesday evening, Jan. 22.

When Mulally took the top job at Ford last year, he became the first executive from outside the industry in modern times named to run one of the Detroit 3.

Since then, Mulally, 62, has worked to overhaul Ford's corporate culture, cut costs and turbocharge the automaker's product development program.

Before joining Ford in September 2006, Mulally was executive vice president of Boeing Co., where he worked since 1969, and CEO of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes operation.

This will be Mulally's first appearance at the congress.
