About Scott Cauvel:
Scott E. Cauvel is Vice President of Sales for Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, appointed to the position in June 2009. During his 21 years at Ford, 17 of them have been in field-based dealership sales and marketing positions. Cauvel began his career at Ford shortly after graduating from Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa. where he completed a degree in International Business and Economics.
For two-and-a-half years prior to joining Ford of Canada, Cauvel worked as the Ford U.S.’s National Field Operations Manager based in Dearborn, Mich. Before that posting, Cauvel was General Manager for Ford’s Mid-Atlantic Market Area based in Washington, D.C. responsible for all sales and marketing activities from the New York to the North Carolina border.
“I’ve worked for Ford my entire career and have relocated 10 times across the United States,” said Cauvel. “I am grateful for the opportunities to grow personally and professionally and contribute to the success of Ford.”
Cauvel was born in Franklin, Pa. on October 29, 1966 and grew up in nearby Oil City, Pa. where his love affair with classic cars began.
“In Pennsylvania, I truly grew up in the automobile business, with my grandfather, uncle and father spending their entire careers in the retail end of the car business.” His understanding and the love of the business runs deep, including having owned a Ford classic. “I owned a red 1966 Mustang convertible, which I loved,” said Cauvel. “For 45 years, the Mustang has been the definitive statement of what Ford represents in the market.”
Cauvel is married with two children; an 11 year old son and an 8 year old daughter. He enjoys cycling and is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
“Sports are a big part of our family, including soccer, swimming, football and hockey,” said Cauvel. “The values that are learned through sports include honesty, integrity, teamwork, perseverance – those are the positive standards I share both at home and at Ford.”
