Honeywell has appointed Olivier Rabiller as president and CEO of the company’s transportation systems business after it spins into a standalone, publicly traded company between now and the end of the third quarter.
Rabiller, a 16-year veteran of Honeywell Transportation Systems, is aiming at business growth through continued expansion of software offerings that monitor vehicle performance and health, and ensure cybersecurity.
“Olivier is a highly effective leader who is well-respected in the automotive industry and has played a key role in the sustained outperformance of his business within Honeywell,” said Honeywell chairman and CEO Darius Adamczyk. “We are excited about what Transportation Systems will accomplish as an independent company under Olivier’s leadership.”
Prior to Rabiller’s current role, he served as vice president and general manager of Transportation Systems for High Growth Regions, Business Development, and Aftermarket, for two years. Prior to that, he served two years as vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems Aftermarket.
Earlier positions at Honeywell include roles within Sourcing for Transportation Systems, Customer Management for Passenger Vehicles at Honeywell Turbo Technologies, and Marketing and Business Development for the European region.
Rabiller joined Honeywell in 2002 as senior program manager and business development manager for Turbo Technologies EMEA. He also served for seven years at Renault in Customer Services, Engine Project Management and Purchasing.
“It is an honor to have this opportunity to lead our business with its extremely talented workforce and world-class technology portfolio into the post-spin era,” noted Rabiller.
“We look forward to continuing to work with our customers and suppliers to advance the state-of-the-art in the vehicle industry, all for the benefit of drivers who are seeking the utmost in performance and efficiency.”
“Transportation Systems is a global leader in turbocharger technologies, and it is rapidly expanding its range of technologies to meet the needs of vehicles with electrified powertrains – these include eBoosting solutions, and high-performance electric compressors for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles,” added Adamczyk.
“The business is also introducing leading software solutions that monitor vehicle performance and health, and offer state-of-the-art cybersecurity.”
