Issue 93 - 01 | Nine Things I Learned from Alan Mulally
By Bryce G. Hoffman Published April 11, 2012 11:00 a.m.

“Alan Mulally arrived in Dearborn like a Kansas cyclone, ripping through Ford’s dark-paneled corridors like a twister through a trailer park. He would take a sledgehammer to the automaker’s ossified silos, force long-time adversaries to kiss and make-up and challenge Ford’s most cherished delusions. Over the next three years, he would also make Ford the most profitable automaker in the world. Mulally would do it as the rest of the American automobile industry fell apart in the face of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. And he would do it without taking a government bailout.”
