GALPIN MAZDA
When I see what Bert has accomplished and what his family has accomplished, it’s a model for my family. And frankly, a role model for me. At Ford, we talk about having three objectives. We want to have great products, build a strong business, and build a better world. That’s what you have done, and again, it’s a model for us! Your Galpinized vehicles, the success of your business, and what you’ve done for your community…it’s really unprecedented! In so many ways, what we set out at Ford to do is exactly what you’ve done. Bert, you’re a great model and a great inspiration for all of us at Ford Motor Company and especially my family
