Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman has a new gig post-presidential campaign: He has been elected to Ford Motor Co.’s board of directors, Automotivenews.com reports.

The former ambassador to China's appointment was approved Wednesday and announced to reporters in a conference call with Ford CEO Alan Mulally.

In a statement, the company said:

“Jon brings to Ford’s board of directors extensive global knowledge and experience -- particularly in Asia with trade issues -- and operational experience gained as governor of Utah, a state that has grown jobs even during the economic crisis,” said Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford. “Jon understands the importance of strengthening the country’s manufacturing base, which will contribute to our success going forward.”
