DEARBORN, MI: Continuing the reorganization of its top voices, Ford

has reassigned two high-level PR executives to new posts.



Mike Moran, formerly director of Ford’s Washington public affairs

office, has been named director of communications for global affiliates

and associations, succeeding Jim Bright. Bright has been reassigned to

the post of deputy GM of corporate communications for Mazda, based in

Hiroshima, Japan.



Moran was unhorsed from his Washington job when Ford PR chief Jason

Vines replaced him with Nicole Solomon, who was manager of

DaimlerChrysler’s Washington PR office (PRWeek, April 24). In his new

post, Moran will coordinate Ford’s communications activities in markets

outside North America and Europe. DaimlerChrysler said Solomon’s

successor has yet to be selected.



Bright’s move to Mazda is not unusual. The company is a Ford affiliate,

and numerous Ford execs have rotated through Mazda assignments in

Hiroshima.
