Report: Mulally's compensation more than that of top three Japanese execs combined

It's certainly tough to argue with the results of Alan Mulally's tenure as chief executive officer of Ford Motor Company.

The New York Auto Show began, as most of them do, with a keynote speech from an auto executive.

The real short version is that he believes three main issues – the auto industry's opportunity to contribute to economic development, energy independence/s

Ford's Alan Mulally earns $18m in 2009. Is he worth it?

That's a rhetorical question – of course he's worth it. Put another way, imagine if Bill Ford were asked this question a few years ago: "Hey Bill, you can have Alan Mulally not only return Ford to profits that end in "billions," he'll raise the stock price, deal with the UAW, burnish Ford's public perception by avoiding bankruptcy, and start giving U.S. buyers the products they've been begging for. That will only cost you $18 million a year,

Mulally: Mercury's star still shining bright... for now

Who will succeed Mullaly at Ford? It's never too early to start handicapping

When Alan Mulally arrived at Ford Motor Company three years ago, the Blue Oval was in bad shape. New product wasn't exactly pouring in and the company's cash hoard was steadily shrinking. And word on the street is that the corporate culture at Ford was in as much trouble as the product lineup, making change difficult. Now in 2009, it appears Mulally has done the near impossible, turning around Ford's product lineup while supposedly positively altering FoMoCo's corporate culture.
