President and Chief Executive Officer, Ford Motor Company

 Jim Hackett is president and chief executive officer, Ford Motor Company, effective May 22, 2017. He also is a member of the company’s board of directors.

Under Hackett’s leadership, together with Bill Ford, Ford is committed to becoming the world’s most trusted company, designing increasingly intelligent vehicles that are connected to the increasingly intelligent world around us – all to make life better for our everyday customers, our communities and our climate.

Prior to serving in this role, Hackett was chairman of Ford Smart Mobility LLC, a subsidiary of Ford formed to accelerate the company’s plans to design, build, grow and invest in emerging mobility services. He was named to the position March 10, 2016.

Before joining Ford Smart Mobility, Hackett was a member of the Ford Motor Company Board of Directors starting in 2013. As a member of the Sustainability and Innovation committee, he was actively involved with the Ford senior leadership team in launching the company’s Ford Smart Mobility plan. He also served on the Audit and the Nominating and Governance committees.

Hackett was vice chairman of Steelcase, the global leader in the office furniture industry, from 2014 to 2015. He retired as CEO of Steelcase in February 2014, after having spent 20 years leading the Grand Rapids-based office furniture company.

As a consumer-focused visionary in the office furniture industry, Hackett is credited with guiding Steelcase to becoming a global leader. During his 30 years there, he helped transform the office furniture company from traditional manufacturer to industry innovator. Having spent his career focused on the evolving needs of consumers, Hackett is recognized for predicting that the office landscape would shift away from cubicles to an open space environment, giving employees the flexibility to work where they want.

Hackett is well known for his creative management approach to business. Through an equity investment by Steelcase in IDEO, an international consulting firm, Hackett forged a unique business relationship with its CEO David Kelley to foster design innovation at the office furniture company. At that time in 1996, IDEO specialized in the design of a number of consumer products, office equipment, medical instrumentation, furniture and computers including design of the first “mouse” for early Apple computers.

He was interim director of athletics at the University of Michigan from October 31, 2014 to March 11, 2016 where he led the search for a permanent athletic director appointed in January 2016. He played center on the University of Michigan football team prior to graduating from the university with a bachelor’s degree in 1977.



Chief Financial Officer

Tim Stone is chief financial officer for Ford Motor Company, effective June 1, 2019. In this role, Stone has overall responsibility for the company’s financial operations, including the Controller’s Office, Treasury and Investor Relations.

Stone joined Ford after decades of experience in the tech industry. He served for 20 years at Amazon, where he led financial support of several of the company’s most significant business initiatives and oversaw operations for others. During this time the company scaled from $150 million in revenue with fewer than 1,000 employees to $200 billion in revenue with 575,000 employees.

He joined Amazon in 1998 as the company’s corporate controller and head of tax. Through the years, he served in a variety of financial leadership roles, helping to oversee corporate business development, leading investor relations, overseeing financial planning and analysis, and heading up European financial operations. He also served as CFO for marquee operations during key periods of growth, including Amazon devices and digital content from 2010 to 2011 and Amazon Web Services from 2012 to 2015.

As the company expanded from its origins as an online bookseller to the multifaceted megabusiness it is today, Stone’s responsibilities also expanded. He partnered with operating business leaders to help drive key areas including operations, data centers, customer experience, manufacturing and fulfillment. During his tenure, Stone took on strategic operations roles including vice president for benchmarking, in which he built and led a worldwide customer experience team. He also oversaw the company’s investment on physical stores, including the integration of Whole Foods.

After his service at Amazon, Stone became chief financial officer for Snap Inc. In that role, he oversaw all finance operations for the public company as well as human resources, real estate, facilities, and security.

Early in his career, Stone worked in financial leadership roles at NextWave Telecom, Platinum Software Corporation and PacTel Cellular. His first role was as an auditor at Arthur Andersen.

Prior to earning his college degree, Stone worked in his father’s general contracting and plumbing business. It was here, more than 30 years ago, that he began his connection with Ford, in the form of the work trucks used in the business.

Stone holds a bachelor of science degree in accounting from University of Southern California. He also serves on the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business Board of Leaders.
