Duncan J. Burrell


Duncan Burrell – Manager, Connected Services and Solutions Organisation, Ford of Europe

Ford is continually strengthening its reputation as an automotive leader for in-car connectivity and communications network-leveraging features and services, thanks in no small part to the work of Duncan Burrell and his team.

As Connected Services and Solutions Organisation manager, Ford of Europe, Burrell oversees the integration of communications-based services inside Ford vehicles – ensuring that such features are delivered to Ford customers in a safe and practical manner that adds value to the ownership experience.

Rather than offering costly additional hardware or subscription options, Ford instead develops features that support the customers’ existing devices and connectivity services.

“We are trying to enhance the relationships people already have, without them having to adopt new systems and without us needing to develop new infrastructures,” said Burrell. “We want our cars to support the digital lives of our customers, and enable seamless transition from the outside world, into the car.”

Based at Ford’s Merkenich Research and Development Centre, Cologne, Germany, Burrell is a keen cyclist and runner. Appointed to his current role in November, 2011, he has held 14 positions across a variety of departments during a Ford career that began in 1992.

After graduating from the University of York with a B.Eng. Hons. in electronics, Burrell joined Ford as a security component engineer. One of his earliest projects was to help develop the first Thatcham approved immobiliser, for the Fiesta XR2i and Escort XR3i models.

He has also held positions as diverse as paint and surface quality engineer, both electro-magnetic compatibility engineer and supervisor for small cars and large cars, business planner, and commercial vehicles chassis electronics supervisor.

Burrell’s roles have taken him to the U.K., Spain and Germany, where he currently lives in central Cologne, and he has worked on vehicle lines including small cars such as Ka and Fiesta, as well as larger vehicles including Transit.

“The great thing about Ford is that you have the opportunity for a huge amount of diversity in your working life,” said Burrell. “During my Ford career I’ve worked in product development, manufacturing and planning roles, which gives a tremendous insight into how our vehicles are developed and built, and helps deliver the best products for our customers.”

However, for Burrell, the most exciting aspect of working for an automotive industry technology leader is the chance to deliver products, features and services that can really improve customers’ ownership experiences.

“We’re not developing high-cost hardware, we’re developing affordable solutions to support customers’ existing choices,” said Burrell. “It’s very much back to grass roots Ford – a car for everyone, and now technology for everyone, too.”
