There are a few reports going around the net that Hau Thai-Tang, current Director of SVT will be getting a promotion to take over the helm at Ford of Brasil, which is Ford Motor Company's most profitable global market.
For those not familiar with Thai-Tang he was the Cheif Program Engineer for FoMoCo on the 2005 Mustang. He spearheaded the iconic launch of the S197 Mustang platform in 2005 and then moved on to become the Director of SVT. His latest work along with SVT personell can be seen in the form of the Shelby GT500 which turned out to be the most powerful Mustang ever produced.
Could this promotion lead Thai-Tang onto bigger and better things like a nod to one day head Ford in the US. One can only speculate about his future but it sounds to me like they are shipping him off to Brasil to be groomed for something bigger.
