Ford appoints new Plant Managers at Bridgend and Dagenham

Ford's Bridgend and Dagenham plants have both appointed new Plant Managers. The appointments follow the retirement of Dagenham Plant Manager, Dave Parker, after almost 36 years with the company.

Dave Parker joined Ford in 1977 and has worked at Ford Dagenham
for almost a decade, overseeing a number of changes, including preparation for the new, next generation, low-CO2 2.0-litre diesel engine that will be produced at Dagenham and designed and engineered at Ford's Technical Centre in Dunton, Essex.

His replacement is Martin Everitt, who was Assistant Plant Manager at Dagenham prior to his appointment as Ford Bridgend Plant Manager in 2012. Martin joined Ford as a graduate recruit in 1989 and has since worked in Powertrain Operations, including roles in Dearborn, Michigan and Cologne, Germany. His responsibilities have included engineering the production facilities for the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine.

Ian Pearson is taking on the role of Ford Bridgend Plant Manager, having recently been the Craiova engine Plant Manager in Romania. Ian joined Ford in 1977 as an apprentice toolmaker and has held a variety of senior manufacturing positions including roles in Valencia and Dagenham.
