Ford Recruits Former Apple Engineer to Lead Advanced Technology Unit
- by Team
Ford has recruited a former Apple engineer to lead its advanced technology unit, as executives look to strengthen sales of the company’s newest, affordable car as the price of gas and diesel rises.
The move comes days after Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook publicly discussed the company’s future with investors in a conference call.
The recruitment of Eric Lefebvre was first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Apple executive Mike Gartenberg, who was also on the call and joined Apple as CEO in January, met with management after it was announced that Apple Inc. was buying a stake in the Detroit-based Ford Motor Co.
The deal, which had been expected to close in a couple of weeks, is worth about $12. Ford already has a sizable stake in the company’s stock, making it a key customer for the new technology produced at Ford’s Advanced Technology Center in Dearborn, Mich.
“The combination of Ford and Advanced Technology Center creates one of the most advanced technology units in the industry,” Steve Curiel, Ford’s CEO, said in a statement.
A person familiar with the situation involved in the development of Apple’s products told The New York Times that the new tech could be used in a new Ford Cascadia, the company’s small crossover SUV. Ford already has sold the car in Mexico and Canada.
There is no current Apple involvement in Ford’s advanced technology unit, but Apple has a long heritage in the industry. It was founded in 1976, making it the youngest company to start and run a unit, and had two employees on the unit when it opened. Apple now has about 20 people working in its Advanced Technology Center.
While the unit was a long shot, the appointment of Lefebvre, who has spent most of his career building advanced technology in North America, is a positive sign that Apple is looking for a more aggressive presence there.
Ford didn’t immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on the report.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said at an investor conference on Thursday, “I’ve always said I think it’s going to be an incredible time for [advanced technology] in this country.

Paging Doug Field to become Ford CEO.
September 10, 2014 – The U. presidential election and the company that runs the United States, The Ford Motor Company have a lot in common. Both are the largest private companies in the world, both employ a large number of executives, both are owned by Ford’s then-existing parent company and both employ large numbers of political appointees and workers.
But the two companies also differ in several ways. The Ford company runs a private foundation that provides grants to U. universities and local non-profits to promote technology. The Ford Foundation itself has many of the same interests as Ford on the world stage, including climate change, education reform, innovation in the auto industry, and technology-related programs in education, government, and the media.
The Ford Motor Company does not run the Ford Foundation. But it did give several hundred million dollars worth of grants to the foundation in the past four years. This is Ford’s largest grant on record, and the company’s president, Rick Wagoner, has talked about giving the foundation millions more in grant dollars.
The company’s board of directors is not the same as that of Ford, which sits on a separate board of directors. The company’s board of directors (the board of directors for the Ford Motor Company, the parent company of the Ford Motor Company, including the board of directors of Ford International) is made up of approximately half of the executive management of the company. This is a significant distinction in the corporate world that’s not present in other areas of corporate governance.
This distinction is critical, as the board has an important role in deciding the direction of the company, and the company’s president has a significant role in this decision. Rick Wagoner, the chief executive officer of the company, sits on the board of directors at the parent company, and this allows him to take a more active role in the decisionmaking of the company and the direction of the company.
The company has had a large number of executives, of both political appointees and employees, for nearly one hundred years. All of Ford’s executives have been appointed by the Ford Motor Company’s board (or its predecessor in the 1920s), until the company was bought by Ford Motor Company in 1927, at which point the Ford Motor Company’s president, Henry Ford, Jr.
Apple vs. Autonomy
Autonomy [Apple –ˈaʌkämi] is a technology company headquartered in Mountain View, California, with sales offices in Europe, Asia Pacific, China, and the Middle East.  It was founded in 1998 by Markkula, a former colleague of Steve Jobs, who had worked with Steve while he was at Apple Computer. Autonomy provides software and hardware (known as Autonomy SDK) to developers, in order to allow them to build custom applications for iOS and Mac, as well as for Android and Windows mobile devices.
It was first introduced in the 2007 version of the iPhone SDK, and in 2011, the company released Autonomy SDK for iOS and Mac, which allowed developers to make apps for iOS and Mac.
In 2012, Autonomy released its software for Windows mobile devices.
Apple had previously considered many possibilities regarding their relationship with Autonomy, but had not implemented these ideas. A few ideas were proposed, and Apple was ready to make them a reality.
Many people speculated as to why Apple would want to invest in an outside company or even an outside company in general to be able to achieve their goal. And while there were many reasons that people thought Apple would consider this move, it turned out that these motives were not what the company wanted. In reality, they did not want to do this because they were not worried about the amount of money Apple would make; it was just that they didn’t want to risk the money. As a matter of fact, they were more concerned about the risks they would have to take.
In any case, Apple eventually decided to give Autonomy a try, and, in the following years, the company had invested $750 million in Autonomy.
At first, Apple was not concerned with the legal aspects of the deal, as Autonomy was not a company in charge of anything legal. But by the time Apple agreed to the $750 million agreement, a lot of money was being lost, and this was not the reason Apple wanted to make a deal with Autonomy.

I have a large list of files I’ve been working with in the past few days, so to avoid that they all get lost, I decided to consolidate the list into a single directory. This means that I can add each file and it still takes less work to move the previous list. I’ll be happy with that approach.
