Back in May, FoMoCo announced the launch of Ford Pro – a global vehicle services and distribution business solely dedicated to commercial and government customers. The automaker didn’t reveal too many details about this new business at the time, only saying that it aims to give commercial customers a comprehensive suite of services to provide them with increased value and productivity. Now, however, the Ford Pro executive team has been revealed, which will be led by previously appointed CEO Ted Cannis.
The Ford Pro executive team will consist of Tim Baughman, general manager, North America (currently Ford’s controller for U.S. marketing, sales, and service), Muffi Ghadiali, head, Ford Pro charging (former CEO of Electriphi), Navin Kumar, chief financial officer (strategic leader, Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC), Tracey Pass, chief human resources officer (former vice president of human resources at The Walt Disney Company), Rahul Singh, chief technology officer (head of software development for Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC), Wanda Young, chief marketing officer (former chief marketing officer of Samsung Electronics America), and Hans Schep, general manager, Europe (head of Ford’s commercial vehicles business in Europe).
“We’ve put together an experienced Ford Pro leadership team that is completely focused on helping commercial and government customers increase uptime and reduce ownership costs,” Cannis said. “With customer productivity as our north star, this leadership team and our employees around the world are going to change how business in the commercial vehicle space is done. Around the world, Ford Pro knows commercial vehicle customers better than anyone, and that’s just a starting point. We’re constantly learning and using that knowledge to develop must-have products and services – recognizing that when our customers win, Ford Pro wins.”
Ford Pro’s all-inclusive offerings will include a variety of new services and products introduced in phases, including a line of ICE-powered, hybrid, and all-electric vehicles, hardware and software charging solutions for electric vehicles, Ford Pro Intelligence digital services that help owners manage their fleets, a network of commercial vehicle centers across the country, and bundled financing for vehicles, services and electric vehicle charging.
FoMoCo expects Ford Pro to grow its global commercial business from $27 billion in revenue back in 2019 to $45 billion by 2025.
