Fields Calls Fixing Ford His #1 Priority

Mark Fields

The strug­gle to save Ford seems to rest square­ly on Amer­i­c­as divi­sion chief Mark Fields’ shoul­ders these days. The automak­er has missed many of its tar­gets, and the Amer­i­c­as divi­sion and Way For­ward restruc­tur­ing charges were large­ly to blame for Ford’s his­toric $12.7-billion loss last year. CEO Alan Mulal­ly con­tin­ues to express con­fi­dence in Fields.
