Social Media Manager / Ford Blog Editor
Hi! I’m Ammar Khan, the Social Media Manager at Ford Canada. I’m really excited to be able to head up the Ford Blog as a place where all members of the Ford community can come together. I want to make your passions, stories and experiences part of our Ford story.

Setting up a social media presence from scratch for Ford in Canada lets me run the equivalent of start-up within a big brand!
