Article by Christian Andrei, on April 11, 2011

On May1, some of Ford Motor Co.’s executive changes in its sales force will take effect. Ford spokesperson Marcey Evans said that 51-year-old Hal Feder will relinquish his post as general sales manager for Ford and Lincoln brands and will head Ford’s export and growth division starting Oct. 1.

The vacated general sales management for Ford and Lincoln will be filled by Marty Collins of Group 1 Automotive effective May 1.

Feder, who had been on his present job for 18 months, will take the place of John Fitzpatrick as director of export and growth. Fitzpatrick, 57 years old, will retire on Oct 1 after having worked at Ford for 31 years.

Feder, who joined Ford in 1983 as a zone manager, will be training Collins and learn Fitzpatrick’s job from May to October. In 2006, Collins left Ford to join Group 1 where he served as the regional vice president of the western region.

Before switching to Group 1, Collins had worked at Ford for 21 years. Right before transferring to Group 1, Collins worked as the executive director for Ford and Lincoln Mercury Marketing. He was responsible for all marketing functions within the Ford and Lincoln Mercury brands.

Since 1985, Collins had held different job tasks within Ford division such as field operations, franchising, product development, strategy and marketing positions. He also worked internationally; he was the northern regional manager for Ford of Britain for two years.
