|Moving On: Scott Monty|
Ford global digital comms head Scott Monty announces departure
Scott Monty, the leader of Ford America digital communications, says he's leaving the car manufacturer in a personal blog posting.Julian Bray writes: When Scott Monty in the USA heard on a Friday that my local Peterborough Stanground paperboy, had his bike tyres slashed whilst out on his Stanground Central paper round early one morning, and the money he'd saved to buy overalls for his car mechanics class at Stanground College starting on the following Monday would have to go on new tyres. Clearly NO overalls - NO classes.
Scott Monty immediately paid for ,and air freighted a set of American 'FORD Tough' branded overalls, and early Monday morning the overalls were handed over just in time for the classes hours later. Scott Monty kept in touch with the young man, and prevailed on Ford UK to put him on the Ford Academy watch list for a possible engineering job.
This is his blog entry:
This may come as a bit of a shock in some circles, but I've left Ford Motor Company. After nearly six years with the company, I will be pursuing something else - the subject of another announcement that I'll make soon.
During my time at Ford, I've had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented men and women not only in the auto industry, but in the communications and marketing industries as well. Together, we created a presence for a 110 year-old company that has given new audiences and new customers a different view of what it's like at a manufacturing and technology leader.
I've been in the presence of great leaders like Alan Mulally, Jim Farley and Mark Fields. I've had colleagues like Karen Untereker and Craig Daitch who took a fledgling digital team and made it stellar.
I've been part of award winning work that goes beyond the contributions of any single individual - certainly myself included. We've been the first brand to reveal a vehicle on Facebook, the first brand on Google+, and our work continues to be celebrated by many.
Much speculation has happened over the eventuality of this day, and I've always been confident that the team and the Ford brand are much stronger than any single individual. While I've been the online face of Ford, interacting with people on blogs, Twitter, Facebook, forums, websites, traditional media and elsewhere, the operation is bigger than me, and we have a cadre of people who will do just fine. I'm flattered to receive such attention and credit, but I'm far from deserving of the accolades.
As for what's next: that's the subject of another announcement that I'll make soon. I'd just like some time to reflect on the work that our team has done and take pride in a job well done.
From your fans in Peterborough, stay in touch Scott, you'll be a hard act to follow. Hope FORD America appreciate that...
