Ford has shuffled its design line-up, appointing Peter Horbury to head up Volvo's design team and putting Moray Callum in charge of its American operations.
Horbury fills the slot vacated by Stephen Mattin, whose departure from the company was announced this week.
Horbury is returning to his roots at Volvo, where he first made his name with the S40, the V40, the S60, the XC90 and then the C30. He then was executive director of design studios at Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Aston Martin.
He moved to Ford’s Americas unit in 2004 and also made a mark on Lincoln’s line-up, leading the design of the 2009 MKS, the 2010 MKZ and its new crossover, the MKT.
Callum moved to Ford’s Americas unit from Mazda as Horbury's deputy in 2006. He has been with Ford since 1988, after stints with Chrysler and Peugeot Citroën. He has worked on a range of vehicles, including the 1998 Super Duty pickup and the Aston Martin Lagonda Vignale concept.
