Product Marketing Manager; SUV/CUV
Hello. My name is Nick Lacasse and I’m a Product Marketing Manager for Ford of Canada, looking after our family of SUVs and crossovers. I’m privileged to work in product development as I get to see products that won’t hit the open roads for years. It’s a lot of work but worth every second – it’s got to be one of the coolest jobs in the company.
I was working at Ford before I could even drive. I began my career as a fifteen year-old car washer at the Quebec City Auto Show. When I graduated, I started work at Ford Credit as a customer satisfaction representative… but I was always interested in the automotive side of things. During my fifteen years with Ford, in Sales Operations, Fleet, and Communications to working with dealers in the GTA.
I grew up in Quebec City and attended Laval University, where I completed a degree in Business Administration with a specialty in Marketing. My wife and I (and our Bernese Mountain Dog!) love traveling.
