Recruited by J. Edward Lundy,[8] she left business school and joined Ford Motor Company in September 1976. She joined Ford's British affiliate, Jaguar Cars, in August 1995, becoming their Chief Finance Officer - making her the first woman to serve on Jaguar's board of directors - until 2000.[9][10][11][12] By October 2000, she had become head of Ford Motor Credit Company (Ford Credit), staying there until 2003.[10] In 2004, she returned to Jaguar, this time as managing director, and in late 2005 she oversaw the launch of the all-aluminium Jaguar XK (X150).[13]
