Millender Bailey previously spent 18 years with Ford Motor Co., where she was global technology strategy and planning director, Mercury parent Brunswick Corp. said in a statement this morning. In that role, she was a leader in electric vehicle technology.

In the new position, she will be responsible for Mercury’s electrification business and product development strategy.
