Ford announced Wednesday that its North America president, Raj Nair, is leaving the company, effective immediately. The announcement comes after an internal investigation found that Nair's behavior was "inconsistent" with the company's code of conduct. Ford did not include further details of the investigation's findings.

Nair, who has been president since June 1, 2017, said in a statement: “I sincerely regret that there have been instances where I have not exhibited leadership behaviors consistent with the principles that the Company and I have always espoused. I continue to have the utmost faith in the people of Ford Motor Company and wish them continued success in the future.”
