  1. Greetings from Sony Europe, I am contacting you with the aim to have a better understanding of the Ford market in NA.
    could you help and provide me a contact for Forecasting & Veh. Scheduling or brand manager?
    I am a bit concerned in terms of supply chain and would like to go until the end to identify real demand decrease for Explorer Titanium.

    cheers,
    Nicolas
