One of the great things about working for The Motley Fool is the access that we have to some of America's most important business leaders. These dynamic executives give us great insights into their approaches and strategies, insights that help us as investors to understand the fine points of the companies we own.

But few of the executives we interview are more fun -- and at the same time, enlightening -- to talk to than Ford  CEO Alan Mulally. As Fool senior auto analyst John Rosevear says: "Every time I talk to Alan I'm blown away by his energy and enthusiasm -- and by how well he explains everything from the nuances of Ford's global strategy to little details about the company's latest products. He's not just the architect and leader of Ford's global transformation, but like all great CEOs, he's also one of the company's very best salesmen. It's clear that he just loves this stuff. When you meet him, you understand right way why he has been such an effective leader for Ford."

John and his "Motor Money" co-host Rex Moore had a few minutes to speak with Mulally last week, at the New York unveiling of the 2015 Ford Mustang. Join John and Rex as Ford's boss shares insights into the design of the new Mustang, and how it fits into Ford's global product plan, in his own enthusiastic style.
