It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of one of our Board members, Bob Rewey.

Bob was one of those men who combined class, respect and presence. His insight and humor were matched only by his passion to help you succeed. He was simply a wonderful person to be around.

Bob had an illustrious career at Ford, reaching the top of their organization in various senior global roles, and we were very fortunate to have him as an ardent supporter of The Reading Group.

For all the Mustang enthusiasts out there:  In the late 1980s, Bob was instrumental in stopping Ford from using the front wheel drive Mazda platform car, which later became known as the Ford Probe, as the new Mustang.  He was one of the leading voices at Ford in developing the 4th generation of Mustangs. Also, he was a strategic sponsor and mentor for the 5th generation Mustang development.

He will be very sadly missed by us all.
