Ford Motor Company is likely going to announce Mark Fields as the next CEO. He will be succeeding eight-year CEO Alan Mulally. Mark Fields is currently the chief operating officer of Ford Motor Company. Last year, there were rumors that Mulally would become the successor to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Satya Nadella ended up taking that job. Fields has been COO of Ford since late 2012 and has been accepting more responsibilities from Mulally.
