Financial officers don't usually win high marks for style, but Booth, 63, is gaining attention for his ability to make Ford into a financial winner consistently. Ford's third-quarter results marked the automaker's ninth straight pretax quarterly profit and 10th straight net profit. Through the first nine months of 2011, Ford earned $6.6 billion in net income on revenue of $101.7 billion. Booth has been tenacious about paying down Ford's restructuring debt. He has kept costs in check and held prices stable.
