Veteran Ford Exec Trevor Worthington To Retire

Ford has seen its fair share of executives opt to retire in recent years, a list that includes chief industrial platform officer Hau Thai-Tang, vice president, Ford Customer Service Division, Ford Blue Frederiek Toney, Ford Credit CFO Brian Schaaf, chief transformation and quality officer Stuart Rowley, Lincoln president Joy Falotico, vice president, India and South America Transformation Steven Armstrong, and vice president, Americas Manufacturing and Labor Affairs John Savona, to name a few. Now, we have yet another name to add to this list – veteran Ford executive Trevor Worthington, who plans to retire from the company at the end of this month.

Trevor Worthington joined Ford back in 1985 as part of the regional product-planning team in Australia, and has since held a number of roles at The Blue Oval since then, most recently serving as the company’s vice president of Ford Blue product programs. He led development of the all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty, Ford Ranger Raptor, and Ford Bronco Raptor, and also headed up product development for Ford Performance, placing a big role in the company’s decision to return to Formula 1 with Red Bull Racing, as well as Le Mans with the Mustang GT3.

“Trevor has always had a keen and evolving sense of what customers want – and, more importantly, what they don’t know that they want in a vehicle,” said Jim Baumbick, vice president, Ford Product Development Operations and Quality. “But what really set Trevor apart was his leadership. His ability to inspire and develop employees throughout his career has played an important role in keeping Ford at the front of the pack with an iconic, winning portfolio of products.”

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to work for Ford,” Worthington said. “It’s been a privilege – there’s a legacy of people I’ve worked with and mentored all over the world that I’m really proud of.”
