Honeywell earlier this month named Robert J. Gillette president and CEO of its $9.8 billion aerospace business. Gillette succeeds Robert D. Johnson, who plans to retire in January 2006, and who will remain with the company for a year as a non-executive chairman of aerospace. Gillette has been with Honeywell since 1996 and was named president and CEO of Honeywell Transportation Systems in July 2001. In his new position, Gillette will be based at the company's Phoenix, Ariz., facilities. Johnson has been with Honeywell since 1994 and has led a number of the company’s Aerospace business units. In 2005, Johnson will serve as chairman of the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), the premier aerospace industry trade association.
