Hamp Calls it Quits at Ford

Ford Motor Company today announced that Chief of Staff Steve Hamp, who played an instrumental leadership role during the last year, will leave the company on Oct. 31.
With Hamp’s departure, the position of Chief of Staff is being eliminated.
Hamp, 58, has been a key advisor for the leadership team and specifically Executive Chairman Bill Ford, focusing on the coordination and management of the Office of Chairman and CEO, alignment of the senior management team, and coordination of the corporate strategic dialogue and integration of strategy into company operations.
Hamp joined Ford after a 27-year career at The Henry Ford, culminating with ten years as its president. The Henry Ford is a national multi-venue historical institution located in Dearborn, Mich.
“I truly appreciate the tremendous service Steve provided to Ford Motor Company and to me personally during his time here,” Ford said.
“Steve left a highly acclaimed career at The Henry Ford to assist me in a crucial transition period. His unique organizational, leadership and communications skills were an enormous help to me as I determined the next steps for our company. Everyone who dealt with Steve benefited from his wisdom, character and integrity.”
Reflecting on his departure plans, Hamp said: “It has been both a privilege and a rewarding experience to have played the role that I have during such a critical time. We have accomplished what we set out to do when I arrived and I leave the company confident in the talented leadership team and optimistic for the future.”
