- Ford Motor Company’s vice-president of design, Moray Callum, has restructured the Blue Oval brand’s global design operations, with former heads of the Australian-based Asia-Pacific studio – Joel Piaskowski and Chris Svensson – taking on key new positions that will shape the future of the US auto giant’s vehicles over the next decade.

- Mr Piaskowski, who over the past three years has led Ford’s European design team, is returning to Dearborn as global director of design, overseeing passenger cars and crossover utility vehicles, while Mr Svensson steps up from his role as design director of the Americas to global director of design, overseeing a second newly defined “work stream”: trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles.
