jun 1, 1987 - Donald Petersen
Turned around Ford's 1980 $1.5 billion
one-year loss, with a record breaking series
of new designs and revamped thinking that took
the company into black ink and end-of-the-decade
record sales, Petersen managed to increase Ford's
U.S. car market share nearly 25 percent, from 17
percent in 1980 to 21 percent nine years later.
