Morris Plains-based Honeywell announced Monday that Torsten Pilz has been named chief supply chain officer and senior vice president.

Pilz will report directly to Darius Adamczyk, chairman and CEO, and serve as a company officer, Honeywell said.

Pilz will be responsible for integrated supply chain and will drive improvements in plant efficiency and working capital while continuing to enhance quality and delivery to the company’s clients.

“The integrated supply chain is a critical enabling factor for Honeywell’s continued growth. Bringing Torsten onto our team will allow us to build on our strong HOS Gold foundation to drive further improvements in our operations and global supplier relationships to better serve our customers,” Adamczyk said.

“Torsten has a track record over the past two decades of driving operational improvements and delivering outstanding results for a variety of companies with complex global supply chains.
