US carmaker Ford Motors has appointed Nigel Harris as their new President. Harris succeeds Joginder Singh, who is now the Director of Corporate Strategy for the company. 

Nigel Harris will be responsible for managing and growing the integrated manufacturing operation of Ford India. He also will lead the charge for product programs to serve both customers in India as well as the growing export business of the company.

Harris began his Ford career in 1985 in New Zealand as a fleet sales analyst, has held a variety of positions in Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific.  He also has been associated with Indian operations for long, when he served as the brand development manager for global B cars during Ford’s entry into the Indian market, almost 15 years ago.  This continued through his current role overseeing sales, distribution and service for Asia Pacific, which includes India.
