DETROIT Jan 7 Ford Motor Co Chief
Executive Alan Mulally will not take a job at software giant
Microsoft Corp and will remain at the U.S. automaker
through at least this year, according to the Associated Press.
A Ford spokesman confirmed that Mulally said he plans to
remain at the automaker through the end of the year, but he
could not confirm whether Mulally said specifically he would not
pursue a job with Microsoft.
"Alan made it absolutely clear today that he has no plans to
do anything else other than to continue serving Ford. He's
completely focused on making progress with the One Ford Plan,"
said Ford spokesman Jay Cooney. "There is no change from our
previously announced plans."
