Google hires on ex-Ford chief, will he drive Google’s driverless car strategy?

Google is looking to delve further into its effort to get a driverless car on the market, and has tapped former Ford CEO Alan Mulally to help.
Mulally, who stepped down as Ford CEO on July 1, has had an interest in the tech world, and was for a long period of time last year the front-runner to replace Steve Ballmer as Microsoft CEO.
The 68-year-old joined Google’s board on July 9, and will be part of the search company’s Audit Committee.
The hiring has prompted high-profile statements from Google, including one from CEO Larry Page, who showed massive excitement over the grabbing of Mulally and his background in the auto industry.
