THE SOI
FoM Executive
BENSON FORD
Benson Ford has been elected
vice-president of the Ford Motor
Company and at the same time
named director of the Lincoln-
Mercury Division.
Mr. Ford, who has been a mem
ber of the Ford board of directors
since 1941, and a member of its
policy committee since 1946, will
assume his duties as chief execu
tive of Lincoln-Mercury Division
immediately.
Thomas W. Skinner, who has
been general manager of the di
vision since its inception in Octo
ber 1945, will continue in that
post.
In announcing the election of
Benson Ford by the board of di
rectors, Henry Ford 11, president
of the Ford Motor Company,
said:
“The appointment of my brother
to the top executive post of the
Lincoln-Mercury Division comes
when the Division is on the thres
hold of its greatest expansion
program which will further estab
lish it as a separate entity.
“There are very definite plans
for the future of Lincoln-Mercury.
We intend to go after the business
in the medium and high-priced
fields more aggressively.
“To do this our line of cars is
being expanded and completely
redesigned. Three new assembly
plants are being constructed and
an entirely separate dealer organ
ization is being developed.”
Benson Ford, who is 28, becomes
top executive of the Lincoln-
Mercury Division at the same age
as his brother became president
of Ford two years ago. Since
last October he has been actively
associated with the division.
