Ford Motor Company Executive Compensation Report

Ford Motor Company [NYSE: F] today filed its 2007 proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The statement outlines compensation for select executives, including William Clay Ford, Jr., executive chairman and former chief executive officer, and Alan Mulally, president and chief executive officer.


Mark Fields & Alan Mulally

The proxy includes a table summary of the total annual compensation provided, granted to, or received by, each of the named executives for 2006. It is important to note that the amounts shown in the Summary Compensation Table associated with stock and option awards reflect the company's accounting expense recognized in our 2006 financial statements for these awards and do not correspond to the actual value that may be recognized by the named executive. Because some of the equity awards have vesting conditions, their costs generally are recognized over multiple years, and the dollar amounts shown generally reflect the company's accounting expense of the awards made during 2006 and prior years.

Compensation details found in the 2007 proxy statement include:

William Clay Ford, Jr.

Executive chairman and former chief executive officer, served as CEO from Jan. 1, 2006 until Sept. 1, 2006, and received no cash salary, bonus or other awards for 2006 pursuant to his May 2005 compensation arrangement to forego any new compensation until the company’s Automotive sector achieves sustainable profitability. His 2006 compensation totaled $10,497,292. The expense related to his previous options and other stock-based awards totaled $9,950,585, and an increase of $152,859 in the present value of accrued pension benefits, are included in Mr. Ford's 2006 compensation.
