Join the Live Chat with US Focus Consumer Marketing Manager

Following an unprecedented global development program under the One Ford strategy, the next-generation Focus is set to continue the successful tradition of its predecessors and demonstrate how Ford is changing.

You can get an insider’s perspective on the global nature of the car in a two-part series here on theFordStory.com in two posts. The Making of a Global Vehicle focused on the design of the new Focus, while The Making of a Global Vehicle Part II looked at the engineering and manufacturing.

KC Dallia is the U.S. Ford Focus Consumer Marketing Manager based in Dearborn MI. His primary brand responsibilities include serving as the voice of the customer in communications, training and public relations activities as well as managing final pricing and packaging strategies. He is also responsible for serving as liaison with regional vehicle engineering and development, operations and commodities planning and regional marketing in the US, Canada and Mexico.

You can join Matt here on February 25, 2011, to ask him questions about developing and launching the Ford Focus as a truly global car.

KC started his career in Ford in 2008 working on cross-vehicle technology campaigns, including SYNC®. Early in 2009, he transitioned to the then current model Focus. Prior to Ford, KC worked as a business development specialist for DuPont, and earlier still as a program management and fundraising manager for Independent Sector, a nonprofit leadership organization located in Washington D.C.

Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, KC’s has a Bachelor degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University and a Masters of Business Administration in consumer marketing from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.

Zachary Davis I like the new Focus, it is a generous addition to the ford fleet. It's much better looking than previous years of the focus. I do hope they offer an All-Wheel Drive Model, or even a Turbo-Diesel model of the Focus.

Bob Long It's a nice car with too many doors.

Bob Long I have a question for the man..why no two door? Every car I have owned since my ver first car (78 Pinto) has been an American car. I don't want to go import. However. It seems that my beloved American car companies have given up on folks like me. I love small cars. I love two doors. I would really consider a Focus or even Fiesta if you would give us a two door. The Mustang is a great car but the insurance is just way too much. Your killing the Ranger in America so that is out as an option. Ford, Dodge, and Chevy have all tossed folks like me under the bus. Are your going to make me bite the bullet go Japanese?
