Rewey retires from Ford
BOB REWEY, the man who in 1996 was behind Ford's decision to Formula 1 seriously, has retired from the firm. Rewey was responsible for Ford's worldwide marketing in 1996 when it was decided that the company would build up a major presence in F1 with the new Stewart Grand Prix team. This has since become the Ford-owned Jaguar Racing team.
Rewey's retirement is no real surprise as he is six years older than current Ford president Jac Nasser and part of the older generation of management which is now being replaced by younger men. His role as head of marketing is to be taken by 40-year-old Brian Kelley who was previously in charge of Ford's electronic business.
