Why Ford's Alan Mulally would be right for Microsoft, or any company [UPDATE]

<p>That Mulally was seriously being considered says a great deal about Microsoft and Mulally.</p>

It appears that the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/02/amid-mulally-rumors-bill-ford-praises-companys-deep-bench/">chatter about Ford CEO Alan Mulally</a> possibly leaving early to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/29/fords-mulally-microsoft-ceo-job/">take over as CEO of Microsoft</a> is losing air pretty fast. What's pretty interesting is that it got any traction in the first place.



That <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/alan+mulally/">Mulally</a> was seriously being considered a solid candidate to takeover the software and digital giant - after running old industrial Ford for seven years after a career at old industrial Boeing - says a great deal about <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/microsoft/">Microsoft</a>, and Mulally.



Mulally told <em>USA Today</em>: "I love serving Ford and have nothing new to add to [My] plans to continue serving Ford."



Ford spokesman Jay Cooney gave <em>Autoblog</em> the following statement: <span id="yui_3_7_2_1_1380739952418_3897">"There is no change to what we announced last November. Alan is absolutely focused on continuing to make progress on the One Ford plan. We do not engage in speculation."</span><p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/03/fords-alan-mulally-microsoft/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Why Ford's Alan Mulally would be right for Microsoft, or any company [UPDATE]</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/03/fords-alan-mulally-microsoft/">Why Ford's Alan Mulally would be right for Microsoft, or any company [UPDATE]</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 03 Oct 2013 09:00:00 EST.  Please see our <a href="/rss-term-of-use/">terms for use of feeds</a>.</p><h6 style="clear: both; padding: 8px 0 0 0; height: 2px; font-size: 1px; border: 0; margin: 0; padding: 0;"></h6><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/03/fords-alan-mulally-microsoft/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to this entry">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/forward/20736154/" title="Send this entry to a friend via email">Email this</a> | <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/03/fords-alan-mulally-microsoft/#comments" title="View reader comments on this entry">Comments</a>[/html]
