Today "The 2009 Time 100" were announced and Alan Mulally made the list. The piece on Mr. Mulally was written by Steve Ballmer, a veteran Time reporter. At one point he writes:
"I'm rooting for him. My support is both emotional and rational. My father worked at Ford for more than 30 years. On the business side, the auto industry is an important customer and partner for Microsoft, with a long track record of shared technological innovation."I think that this is a lot of people's sentiment. At Thoroughbred Ford we are seeing more and more people in the Midwest looking at Ford for the first time, or coming back to Ford. A lot of that has to do with the leadership at the helm.
Congratulations Mr. Mulally, we are rooting for you too!
