Ford North America President Raj Nair Fired For 'Inappropriate Behavior'

He added that he continued to have great faith in the people at Ford Motor and wish them all continued success moving forward. The decision follows a recent internal investigation into reports of inappropriate behavior.

There are no current investigations or lawsuits involving Nair, Ford said.

As of this writing Thursday morning, no further details have come to light.

Days before Hackett was named CEO, Ford a year ago awarded Nair a $5 million retention bonus that would vest in May of 2020, the publication said. Galhotra will take over Nair's position next month. He was head of global product development and served as chief technical officer before a series of management changes that followed Jim Hackett becoming CEO previous year. Hackett, a former chief executive of the office-furniture maker Steelcase, had been running Ford's activities related to self-driving cars. "We are awarding a special stock award to [four] key leaders in critical areas as part of their long-term compensation", the company said last spring. He now leads Ford Credit's marketing and has played a key role in its expansion in China. Rowley is Ford's vice-president of strategy. He's now Ford's controller.

The North American business drives the majority of Ford's profits, with a sales mix rich in high-margin pickup trucks and SUVs.

Suarez, Alba strike as Barcelona prepare for Chelsea by edging past Eibar
During that time they have beaten third-place Valencia and embarrassed Sevilla by putting five past them last month. But a moment of brilliance by Messi was all it took to swing the match Barcelona's way.

Ford is scheduled to host a monthly investor call on March 1. It is not clear Nair's departure fits under that umbrella.

Raj Nair is the new leader of Ford's North America region. He joined Ford in 1987 and rose through the automaker's manufacturing and engineering ranks to become head of global product development in 2015. A lot of institutional knowledge and expertise went out the door with his departure.

Ford did not disclose Nair's salary. It shows that Hackett is serious about "providing and nurturing a safe and respectful culture". Galhotra, 52, is a 29-year veteran of the company, most recently leading the Lincoln brand and serving as Ford's chief marketing officer.

Ford also announced several other promotions as a result of Galhotra climbing the executive ladder with most notably Joy Falotico taking over for Galhotra's duel roles as Lincoln chief and Ford CMO.
