Ford New Zealand Managing Director, Richard Matheson, has today announced he is repatriating to the United States of America. After six years at the helm of Ford New Zealand, Richard will return to Ford Motor Company in Dearborn to take a senior position in the North American Field Operations Team.

Concurrently, Ford New Zealand is able to announce Richard's replacement. Trevor Auger has been appointed to the position of Managing Director of Ford New Zealand, effective December 1 2008.
Currently Sales Manager of Ford New Zealand, Trevor brings a wealth of experience in the automotive and Finance industries to the role.
