Alan Mullaly, who was president and CEO of Ford Motor company for the past eight years and just stepped down last month, has joined the Google board.

Mulally had been a top outside candidate for Microsoft CEO, a job that went to internal candidate Satya Nadella after a long search.

Instead, Mulally took a part-time gig as a Google board member on July 9, Google announced today; he will serve on the board’s audit committee.

Earlier in his career, Mulally was a top executive at Boeing.

Mulally is not replacing anyone on the Google board, said a Google spokeswoman.
