Alan Mulally, who stepped down earlier this month as chief executive of Ford Motor Co., joined Google Inc.'s board.

Mr. Mulally will serve on Google's audit committee, the company said in an announcement Tuesday.

"Alan brings a wealth of proven business and technology leadership experience," Google Chief Executive Larry Page said in a statement.

Mr. Mulally spent nearly eight years at Ford where he undertook a massive turnaround effort. He slashed plants and headcount, and borrowed $23.5 billion to pay for restructuring and investment in new products. Under Mr. Mulally's leadership, Ford also shed brands like Jaguar and Land Rover.

He retired July 1 as Mark Fields took over as CEO of the Dearborn, Mich.-based company.

Mr. Mulally was a top Boeing Co. executive before taking command of Ford.
