Ford of Europe will start 2011 with new leaders for its sales and product development departments.
Roelant de Waard will take over as Ford of Europe's vice president of marketing, sales and service, succeeding Ingvar Sviggum, who will retire at the end of the year.
Frank Davis has been appointed vice president of product development in Europe, replacing Joe Bakaj, who has been appointed Ford's vice president of powertrain engineering.
The moves, announced Thursday, bring to three the number of top management changes Ford has made at its European unit in the last three months. The changes announced Thursday will take effect Jan. 1, 2011.
De Waard and Davis will report to Stephen Odell, who was named to succeed John Fleming as Ford of Europe CEO in July.
