Bill Ford, Jr. has reportedly been in talks with former hotshot DCX exec Eckhard Cordes about a high-ranking slot within the Ford Motor operation. Cordes, who left DaimlerChrysler after being passed over for the company's top job in favor of former Chrysler-division boss Dieter Zetsche, reportedly hasn't committed to anything, but it drives speculation, given his ultimately fruitless conversations with Carlos Ghosn and Zetsche himself, that Ford is attempting to attract a top-notch product guy to replace himself as CEO.
