I am always impressed by the folks at Ford each time I attend a conference with them. Sure they roll out the red carpet, make me feel welcomed, and fill my head with invaluable information I can use as CMO for SBS Brands on consumer trends but it is more than that.
Sure I have been a Ford girl all my life and I know I may be biased but aside from sexy cars that have the best engines around, there is a genuine thread of green that runs through this company and we all benefit. So it was no surprise to me that Ford has topped the list of Top 50 Global Green Brands.
