FREDERICK, Md.  - Alan Mulally, who was Ford Motor Co.’s president and chief executive officer from 2006 to 2014, will be a keynote speaker at the National Auto Auction Association’s annual convention in November. 

Mulally’s keynote presentation will be during NAAA’s opening luncheon Nov. 14, and it will be followed by a moderated Q&A session that also includes:
  • Cox Automotive president Sandy Schwartz
  • KAR Auction Services chairman and CEO Jim Hallett
  • BSC America chairman and CEO Ray Nichols
“We’re honored and thrilled to have someone of Alan Mulally’s leadership caliber and business acumen in the industry deliver our keynote address,” NAAA chief executive Frank Hackett said in a news release.

“The Ford Motor Company has been a loyal member of our association and has graciously sponsored a vehicle for NAAA presidents to use as official transportation during their annual term,” Hackett said.

When it was announced in May 2014 that Mulally would be retiring from his role leading Ford that July, the automaker had achieved 19 consecutive quarters of profits.

He is largely credited for being the key cog to the automaker’s turnaround.

“Alan deservedly will be long remembered for engineering one of the most successful business turnarounds in history,” Ford’s executive chairman Bill Ford said in a statement when Mulally’s retirement was announced in 2014.

“Under Alan’s leadership, Ford not only survived the global economic crisis, it emerged as one of the world’s strongest auto companies. We always will be grateful to Alan for his leadership, compelling vision and for fostering a culture of working together that will serve our company for decades to come.”
