DETROIT (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co on Friday nominated two younger Ford family members to its board of directors, continuing a presence among the directors for the family that founded the U.S. automaker.
Ford said it nominated Alexandra Ford English, the 33-year-old daughter of Executive Chairman Bill Ford, and Henry Ford III, the 40-year-old son of Edsel Ford, Bill's cousin who is retiring from the board in May. Both the younger Fords are great-great grandchildren of Henry Ford, who founded the Dearborn, Michigan-based company in 1903.
Both will stand for election to the board at the annual shareholders' meeting on May 13.
Edsel Ford, 72, who joined the board with Bill Ford in January 1988, and John Lechleiter, 67, who joined the board in 2013, will not stand for re-election to the board. Edsel Ford had reached retirement age.
Bill Ford said the board expects to take additional steps to diversify its makeup going forward.
