Shanks has a wealth of global experience in business strategy and corporate planning. He was appointed a corporate officer of Ford Motor Company in July 2004, when he was elected to the position of vice president, Operations Support, Finance and Strategy, Ford of Europe and Premier Automotive Group (PAG). In that position, he primarily was responsible for driving financial methodology, processes, best practices and synergies between the two entities.

Prior to that assignment, Shanks served as chief financial officer for PAG, as well as for Mazda Motor Corporation. In addition to other finance positions within Mazda, North America and South America, he also led the finance function in Taiwan’s Ford Lio Ho Motor Company and business development activities in Ford’s Asia-Pacific operations.
