Joe Hinrichs, EVP & President, The Americas, Ford, Alisa Priddle, Detroit Free Press, Mike Ramsey, The Wall Street Journal. Topic: Ford in the Americas.

Joe Hinrichs has been with the Ford Motor Company since 2000. Starting out as a plant manager, and gaining experience in a variety of positions throughout the company since then, today he finds himself at Glass House in Dearborn. These days he has worked his way up to executive vice president of the company as well as the man in charge of The Americas for Ford. Though the classic org chart might show any number of executives on the line just below President & CEO Mark Fields, if you quiz analysts and reporters alike, most will tell you Joe Hinrichs is indeed “Second at Ford.” And he is also this week's special guest on Autoline. Joining host John McElroy to discuss the state of Ford today with Joe is Alisa Priddle from the Detroit Free Press and the Wall Street Journal’s Mike Ramsey.

“A GM Legacy”

Mark Reuss, EVP, Global Product, General Motors, Michelle Krebs,, Jeff Bennett, The Wall Street Journal. Topic: GM product.

Mark Reuss has been around General Motors for so much of his life, if cut he probably would bleed GM blue. Not only was his father Lloyd a former GM president, but Mark himself – who has been with the corporation for over 20 years – started as an intern and has now risen to Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain -- in essence the Number 2 position in America’s largest auto company. He joins John McElroy along with his panel on this very special edition of Autoline THIS WEEK.
