Alan Mulally, who just stepped down as Ford's CEO after heading a successful turnaround, is joining Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) board.

Mulally was widely reported to be a top Microsoft CEO candidate before Satya Nadella got the job.

Google currently lists 10 directors on its site: Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Eric Schmidt, VCs John Doerr and K. Ram Shriram, VMware co-founder Diane Greene, Stanford president John Henessy, ex-Princeton president Shirley Tilghman, ex-Pixar CFO Ann Mather, and ex-Intel CEO Paul Otellini.

The announcement comes as Apple and IBM and form a multifaceted enterprise mobility partnership.
