Ford will soon name Fields next CEO
It was already clear to everyone that when Mark Fields was promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO) in December 2012, he was credited to succeed Mulally as the new Chief Executive Officer of Ford Group .
The company may announce the move as soon as early next week. Fields, a 25-year veteran of Ford, will replace the current President Alan Mulally later this year.
Mulally (68 years old) has repeatedly expressed a desire to retire after leading Ford operations from deep losses to record profits.
