Top African-Americans In The Auto Industry
Linda Cash, Director, North America Manufacturing Engineering at Ford Motor Company
Cash didn’t intend on working in the automotive industry, she was just attracted to a job at Ford Motors that had a great job description and was located in Atlanta, where she wanted to be. “So I didn’t have a desire to get into the auto industry, but I did want to get with a really good company that would allow me to do what I trained to do,” she told Automotive News.
She started her career in 1984 as an industrial engineer at the Atlanta Assembly Plant, and says today she is most proud of the fact that “I’ve been able to create some very successful and cohesive teams.”
