Honeywell announced that Alexandre Ismail has been named President and CEO of its US$4.6 billion transportation systems business, effective immediately. Ismail, 44, succeeds Adriane Brown who will move into a newly created role as senior vice president energy strategy. She will be responsible for developing and coordinating energy policy and marketplace strategies across all Honeywell’s businesses and functions. Both Ismail and Brown will report to Honeywell’s Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.
“We continue to build depth and strengthen our management team with leaders that have industry, technical, and business expertise,” said Cote. “We’re counting on both Adriane and Alex to continue to make significant contributions to the long-term success of the company.”
Ismail was previously president of Honeywell Turbo Technologies, a position he has held since November 2008 when the business combined its passenger and commercial vehicle divisions into a single global structure. He has also served Honeywell Turbo Technologies as worldwide director, marketing and business development; vice president EMEA, sales and customer management; and vice president and general manager for EMEA and India.
