Joel Piaskowski – former design head at Hyundai in the US has become the Ford’s new director of exterior design for the Americas.
He will report directly to Moray Callum (brother of Jaguar Design boss, Ian Callum) Ford’s Director of Design for the Americas.
Piaskowski was a graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and joined Hyundai in 2003 after working at Ford under Ed. T. Welburn Jr, currently the Vice President of Design at General Motors.
With Hyundai making waves in all its operating markets throughout the world, there is no doubt that competitors will continue circling their various design departments.
