Henrik Fisker, head of Ford's Ingeni advanced design studio in London, and Gerry McGovern, head of Ford's Lincoln-Mercury design team in the USA, are changing positions.
McGovern will move to London to head Ingeni, while Fisker will shift to Irvine, Califiornia, USA, to head Ford's Advance Design Center there.
Fisker will retain his second job as design director of Aston Martin.
Ford is restructuring its US styling operations to make design a function of platform teams. As this change takes place, Lincoln-Mercury is being moved from Irvine back to Dearborn, Michigan.
