Ford CEO delivers truck to Aiken dealership
AIKEN, S.C. (AP) — The president and CEO of Ford Motor Co. made a stop in South Carolina to make good on a promise to a friend.
Satcher Ford Lincoln Mercury owner Rick Heath says Ford chief Alan Mulally (muh-LAHL’-lee) visited his dealership Friday.
Heath says Mulally had told his friend and Aiken businessman Rob Johnston that, if Johnson ever bought a new Ford F150 pickup truck, Mulally would deliver it personally.
Johnston said he had previously owned an F150 and regretted selling it.
Heath has worked at Satcher Ford since for more than 40 years and bought the dealership in the 1980s. He says he coordinated the visit with Mulally’s office and enjoyed spending time with the CEO.
