Ford, program manager part ways after inappropriate behaviorby Drew Johnson
It's the second high-level Ford employee to leave as the result of inappropriate behavior this year.
Ford has cut ties with another high-level employee over allegations of inappropriate behavior, a new report finds.
According to , Prakash Patel, a global director of program management, recently left his post at Ford after allegations of inappropriate behavior surfaced. The exact circumstances surrounding his departure remain unclear and Ford declined to comment, citing privacy rules for "personnel matters.”
Patel's departure comes just six-months after Ford dismissed its executive vice president and president of North America, Raj Nair, over inappropriate behavior. At the time Ford said that "certain behavior by Nair was inconsistent with the company's code of conduct.” Patel reported to Nair for a period of time.
As a global director, Patel was in charge of more than 1,200 employees worldwide. Prior to taking that position in January 2017, Patel held a number of other jobs with Ford, including strategy manager for Lincoln and a five-year stint as the program manager of Mustang.
