The Dearborn, Mich.-based automotive giant, Ford, announced that Sherry House will be joined as the Vice President of Finance. She will succeed the current CFO, John Lawler, as CFO in early 2025. With this Sherry House will be the first woman to become CFO of Ford Motors. 

In a LinkedIn post on Friday, House wrote that 2024 is the “most important and interesting” time to be in the auto industry where work is “simultaneously complex, global, invigorating, and creative.” House also explained that in her career, she has experienced the “greatest professional satisfaction when having the opportunity to celebrate with the team after solving an immense problem or delivering a cutting edge product or service to a delighted customer…I’m excited to now contribute to the industry in a new role, through Ford.”

House added: “I’m also excited to return to my roots—to my home state of Michigan, and to a company where many of my early family members made their living, including my grandfather who was a tool and die maker at Ford for many years.”

House previously served as a CFO at Lucid Motors. Before joining Lucid, Sherry House held several leadership positions at autonomous-driving technology company, Waymo. She has also served multiple stints at General Motors in product engineering, then corporate strategy, accounting, venture capital, and business planning and analysis.
