Google adds former Ford CEO Alan Mulally to its Board of Directors

Just a few months ago Alan Mulally was being mentioned as the possible next CEO of Microsoft, but after leaving his position as CEO of Ford he's now aligned with a different tech company: Google. Google announced today that he's joined its Board of Directors, effective July 9th. While his connections to the auto industry could obviously be valuable for projects like Android Auto and the development of self-driving cars, Google's announcement also mentions his aviation experience as a former executive at Boeing. Mulally was president of Boeing's space and defense business, and between Project Loon, drones and satellite launches we figure there's plenty of input to provide there as well.
