Over the summer and early fall, during the City Council election campaign, I walked nearly every street in Auburn Hills, knocking on doors and getting to know so many fantastic Michiganders who call our community home. Each of you who took time to talk with me taught me a little more about the soul of our city. Here’s a summary of the experience I will put to work for you on the Council.
Following my retirement from Ford Motor Company, I founded Anne Doyle Strategies, a leadership and communications consulting practice. In 2004, I was named to the Auburn Hills Planning Commission, and have completed training to become a Certified Master Citizen Planner. I'm a member of the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, the Sierra Club and St. John Fisher Parish.
As Director of Ford North America Communications, I served on the Executive Crisis Team for the Ford Explorer/Firestone Tire business crisis. In 2001, Automotive News named me one of the "100 leading Women in the North American Auto Industry."
As the daughter of long-time Detroit sports broadcaster Vince Doyle, it's no wonder I followed in his footsteps as a radio and TV journalist. Working for Channel 2 in Detroit from 1978-84, I was one of the first women TV sports broadcasters in the U.S. In 2007, I was elected to the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame.
I'm a graduate of the University of Michigan and have done advanced studies at Northwestern, Duke, Harvard, the University of Madrid and the Ford Executive Development Center. In 2006, I was named an "Honorary Spartan" by Michigan State University. My 17-year-old son, Kevin and I have travelled together to five continents.
