Google adds former Ford CEO to board of directors

Google today announced that Alan Mulally has recently joined its board of directors. As the former President and Chief Executive Officer of Ford Motor Company it stands to reason he’ll bring his auto expertise to Google’s Android Auto initiative. It appears, however, that he’ll take on a different role in at least the short term.

A veteran corporate executive of the automotive and aviation industries, Mulally will serve on Google’s Audit Committee.

Looking at his background we also learn that Mulally has spent time on other various boards, including NASA, U.S. Air Force Scientic Advisory Board, and multiple universities and institutions.
