William Clay Ford's autograph. The original is on file in the Hammes Archives.

Now, at the beginning of its second century, another Ford family member has been named CEO of Ford Motor Company, the first family member to hold the position in more than 20 years. Like his uncle, Henry Ford II, William Clay Ford Jr. (great-grandson of Henry Ford) leads a company where "family" has a much broader meaning, referring to far more than just those with the last name "Ford." Today, the Ford family comprises employees, dealers, suppliers, shareholders, customers, and more-all those that help fulfill the vision Bill Ford has defined for the company: to create great products that benefit customers, shareholders, and society.
