Bangalore: Honeywell has announced that it has named Krishna Mikkilineni nd Bask Iyer to its Executive Management Team. Meanwhile, Larry Kittelberger, Senior Vice President, Technology and Operations, will retire from Honeywell after almost 13 years at the company.

Mikkilineni will become Senior Vice President, Engineering and Operations, and will be based in Bangalore, India. In his new role, he will be responsible for the company's Engineering and Integrated Supply Chain organizations, including the Honeywell Operations Council and Technology Leadership Council.

Mikkilineni will add these duties to his current role as President of Honeywell Technology Solutions, which has grown to 7,500 engineers. He has been with Honeywell for more than 24 years, and has served in leadership roles that span engineering, manufacturing, and business development. Mikkilineni has spent much of this time living and working in emerging markets.

"Krishna has demonstrated his ability to build an organization from the ground up, drive results, and lead a global enterprise. He and his team will ensure that we continue to invest wisely in new geographies, new products, new services, and new technologies. That seed planting has made a big difference during the recession and will be even more important in the future," said Dave Cote.

Mikkilineni holds a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering and a bachelor's of engineering degree in electronics and communications from the University of Florida.

In addition to his current role as Chief Information Officer, Iyer will assume additional responsibility for Honeywell's Global Security organization and Functional Transformation efforts. He has been with Honeywell for more than 10 years, serving in various corporate, business, and regional Information Technology (IT) leadership roles. During his career at Honeywell, Iyer lived and worked in a number of important emerging markets. He holds a master's degree in computer science from Florida Institute of Technology, and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Annamalai University in India.

"Bask's terrific work since joining Honeywell has added focus and rigor to our global IT operations, deploying new technology platforms and the core tools each of us needs to get our jobs done every day. This has strengthened IT's role as a critical business partner throughout the company," said Dave Cote.

The duo will report to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dave Cote from April 12, 2010.

"We have counted on Larry to drive big organizational shifts for Honeywell and he has delivered every time," said Cote. "Larry has been a champion of operational, technical, and process excellence, and has demonstrated a strong commitment to continuing the seed planting Honeywell needs for future success. He focused our engineers and technologists worldwide on the customer, innovation, growth, and productivity."
