Honeywell inks future CFO as finance exec

Morris Plains-based conglomerate Honeywell announced Tuesday that Greg Lewis as been named vice president, corporate finance, effective immediately.

This role will lead him to become senior vice president and chief financial officer on August 3.

Lewis will succeed Tom Szlosek, who is retiring from the company. Szlosek will work closely with Lewis to ensure a smooth transition and provide consulting services to Honeywell for five months after he retires.

Once Lewis is CFO, he will also become an officer of Honeywell.

In this new role for the next three months, Lewis will oversee treasury, tax, audit, business analysis and planning, investor relations, M&A, real estate, pension, financial operations, and enterprise information management.

“During his tenure at Honeywell, Greg has gained a thorough understanding of our businesses, markets and customers along with a stellar operational finance skillset, and he has a track record of driving great business results in a variety of industries,” said Darius Adamczyk, Honeywell chairman and CEO. “In his most recent assignment as leader of our EIM initiative, Greg has been standardizing data access and transforming information systems across Honeywell’s enterprises into a differentiator in how we serve our customers, create new offerings and run our businesses to drive superior returns.”

“Honeywell’s finance function has a talented leadership team and strong accounting and controls in place to ensure the integrity and accuracy of our financial reporting, and to enable the Company to deliver on its plans for 2018 and beyond. We are confident that Greg — with his outstanding operational and finance skills — will allow us to build on Honeywell’s strong record of outperformance,” Adamcyzk said.

Prior to his appointment, Lewis has served as vice president, EIM, since October 2016. Before that, he was vice president and CFO for the automation and control solutions business group; CFO of Honeywell Process Solutions; and then vice president, business analysis and planning. Lewis joined Honeywell in 2006. Before that, he was at Tyco International as its vice president of finance and CFO for the A&E products division.

“Tom has been an instrumental part of our leadership team, helping drive profitable organic growth and shape our decision making around the upcoming spins of our homes and transportation systems businesses,” Adamczyk said. “I would like to thank Tom for his many years of service to Honeywell and for his full support for a comprehensive and smooth transition.”
