The Detroit News
reports that Patrick Schiavone, who headed design for Ford's trucks and crossovers in North America and was lead designer for the F-150 pickup, has left the Dearborn, Mich.,
automaker to take what the paper says is a senior position at major appliance company Whirlpool.
He was also in charge of designing the Ford Flex, Expedition, Lincoln Navigator and
short-lived Blackwood pick-up, noted the paper. --Karl Greenberg
