DETROIT, March 9 (Reuters) – Ford Motor Co., which along with other automakers
is struggling to boost sales amid the U.S. economic slowdown, on Friday said
its global marketing chief was stepping down after little more than a year on
the job.

Bob Rewey, 62, has held the position of vice president for global consumer
services and North America since January 2000. He has been with Ford for 38
years.

The world’s No. 2 automaker said Brian Kelley, 40, was taking over the Global
Consumer Services division and would be responsible for Ford’s worldwide marketing
efforts.

Kelley’s former position as head of ConsumerConnect, Ford’s electronic-business
arm, will be filled by Karen Francis, former head of General Motors Corp.’s
Oldsmobile division.
