Holy Crap! Alan Mulally just told me a story about a woman named Sally Gibbs. Sally is a very nice woman who sent Ford a check several years ago in the amount of ten dollars. Sally wanted to show her modest support for a company that refused to take taxpayer money, and played such a big role in the manufacturing backbone of this country. I swear, Alan actually teared up telling me the story. Then his assistant told me that Alan – being Alan – called the woman at home to personally thank her. (This is not the behavior of your average CEO.) Apparently, Sally and Alan have since struck up a correspondence. His assistant happened to have some those letters, and showed me a few during dinner this evening. I read them aloud, and two of them are on the video below. It’s a bit disjointed, and a little noisy. But I’m posting it because the enthusiasm of this guy is rather extraordinary. The man walks the walk. And if there was ever a CEO who shares the views of this site, it would be Alan Mulally. He gets it…big time. Click here to watch the video.
