To no one's surprise, Steve Hamp, chief of staff for Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, is bailing on the blue oval at the end of this year. The well-connected brother-in-law to former CEO and continuing chairman Bill Ford was apparently instrumental in bringing the former Boeing big wig on board. Ford hasn't announced any plan to replace him.

Hamp, who is married to Bill Ford's older sister Shiela, was brought on in early November of 2005 after Jim Vella stepped down. The then-president of the Henry Ford Museum was responsible for running Michigan's number one tourist attraction, bringing in $54 million in revenues and representing a huge public relations tool for Ford.
