Ex-Ford chief Alan Mulally joins Google's board of directors

Google Inc has appointed former Ford Motor Co CEO Alan Mulally to its board of directors, drafting a seasoned Detroit executive into its ranks as it develops a self-driving car and tries to get its software into more automobiles. Mulally joined venture capitalist John Doerr, former Intel Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini and VMWare co-founder Diane Greene on the board of the Internet advertising leader. Mulally on July 1 handed Ford's helm to Chief Operating Officer Mark Fields, six months earlier than expected.
