Fourteen months after leaving Boeing for the top job at Ford Motor Co., Alan Mulally still has a lot of work to do. He has arranged a loan package worth $23.4 billion, put Jaguar and Land Rover up for sale and Volvo up for review, and last month snatched marketing star Jim Farley from Toyota. But U.S. sales continue to fall, and Ford Motor expects more financial losses this year and in 2008.
Getting back on customer consideration lists remains Ford's biggest challenge, the CEO says. Mulally, 62, spoke with Editorial Director Peter Brown and Staff Reporter Amy Wilson.
