TOM ALEXANDER: FORD SYNC SOFTWARE DEVELOPER
Tom Alexander, software developer, Information Technology SYNC Proof of Concept team
Tom Alexander is a software developer with Ford's Information Technology SYNC Proof of Concept team. He joined the company in 2009, tasked with helping develop new software concepts for the SYNC® platform.
"I've always had a love of cars – especially the technology inside the cars," says Alexander, who grew up doing auto repairs in the garage with his dad. "When Ford introduced SYNC, that sent my interest in vehicle technology over the top.
"Now, I work for Ford on a team that thinks of new ideas for SYNC, codes them and demos them in a short period of time," adds Alexander. "It's a really cool position."
A 2008 graduate of Michigan State University, Alexander holds a bachelor's degree in Science and Computer Science from the College of Engineering.
