Blog: Dave LeggettEx-Ford boss David Thursfield

Dave Leggett | 7 January 2013

There's a blast from the past in the news at the moment, not really for the best of reasons. I never met David Thursfield, Ford's head of international operations a decade or so ago, but I do remember his reputation for being something of a fiery character. And I also recall that he was at the centre of a legal dispute when then Ford of Europe boss Martin Leach left the company for Maserati (Leach has a London-based consulting firm now). Below is a link to a report about David Thursfield's latest spot of bother in the courts.
