Business Administration, 1973

Ford Motor Company Group Vice President and President of Ford's Asia Pacific Operations

At Ford Motor Company, I oversee all of Ford's operations and partnerships within the Asia Pacific region; I am based in Shanghai, China, where I live. I was also recently named a member of the Lycoming College Board of Trustees, which means I get the opportunity to continue to be involved with my alma mater!

I joined Ford as a financial analyst in 1977, and have held a variety of leadership positions. Most recently, I served as controller, The Americas. Prior to that, I was executive director, Ford Canada, Mexico and South America Operations. I also served as chief financial officer and vice president of strategic planning for Ford of Europe and chief financial officer of Ford Asia-Pacific Operations.

It all started at Lycoming when I decided to get my bachelor's degree in business. After that, I decided to pursue my master's degree in business administration from Temple University.

In 2008, I was fortunate to receive the College's Outstanding Alumni Achievement Award. My wife, Carol (Marsland), a 1973 Lycoming graduate, and I have three daughters.
