SHANGHAI: Ford Motor Co said on Wednesday it had appointed a new head of its China operations to help turn around flagging sales in the world's largest auto market and fill a post vacated when the firm's previous China head abruptly stepped down in January.The U.S. carmaker said in a statement that Anning Chen, a former executive at the firm, would become the new chief executive officer and president of Ford China.
Ford China would also be elevated to become a stand-alone business unit, reporting directly to global headquarters, the company said.(Reporting by Yilei Sun, Norihiko Shirouzu and Adam Jourdan; Editing by Stephen Coates)
