In December 2008 Samir Balwani wrote a blog post about how Scott Monty, the head of social media for Ford Motor Company, stopped a Ford PR disaster. Balwani noted that Ford had taken a huge step in innovation and that the company’s foray into social media was to be applauded. His post kicked off with the assertion, “What many people don’t understand about social media is that it isn’t truly a marketing tool. Instead it’s a way to build connections with your customers, solve problems, and strengthen your brand.”
Scott Monty heads up social media efforts for Ford Motor Company, an effort he began in July. In that role, he’s responsible for internal and external adoption of social media strategy to help improve Ford’s overall reputation. I sat down with Scott last month to discuss his approach, before what could only be categorized as an extremely active period for Scott.
