Michael Pallotta, president, Pallotta Ford Lincoln, has been appointed as chair of FordDirect’s board of managers. Mike has been serving on FordDirect’s board of managers since August 2016 – only the second board chair to serve in FordDirect’s almost 20-year history.
Over the next several weeks, Ford and Lincoln dealers have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback to FordDirect in the 2019 Dealer Experience Survey. The survey opened last week.
The insights FordDirect gathers from this annual year-end check-in will tell us how we can continue to improve and provide dealers with even better products, services, and support.
Dealers take approximately 15 minutes of their time to complete the survey, and individual responses are not disclosed to FordDirect. The identities of all respondents are kept strictly confidential.
The FordDirect Cares Charity Golf Outing on Sept. 9 was a success, as clear weather prevailed and a beautiful setting at the Inn at St. John's in Plymouth, Mich. set the stage for more than 155 golfers and 14 event sponsors.
