MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., May 8, 2008 -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced that Sean O’Hollaren has been named Senior Vice President, Global Government Relations, effective immediately. O’Hollaren succeeds Tim Keating and will report to Peter Kreindler, Senior Vice President and General Counsel.

“Sean is a strong and experienced leader who will step seamlessly into this important position,” said Kreindler. “His experience at the White House, his extensive work with Congress, the Senate, federal government agencies, and the corporate community, in addition to his years of service at Honeywell, make him the right person to fill this role.”

“Honeywell Government Relations is a much stronger function today as a result of Tim Keating’s leadership,” continued Kreindler. “We thank Tim for his many contributions to Honeywell and wish him the best in the future.”

O’Hollaren is currently responsible for leading Honeywell’s lobbying activities and the company’s key federal government relationships. In his new role, he will lead Honeywell’s worldwide government relations initiatives, particularly in the areas of energy efficiency, airline safety, and homeland security.

Honeywell also is the technology leader in avionics, including flight and airport safety, and in security systems that support homeland security around the globe.

Since returning to Honeywell in 2007 after serving in the current Bush administration, O’Hollaren has worked extensively on building Honeywell’s position with lawmakers in key areas including U.S. dieselization, defense and space appropriations, energy and climate, runway incursions, and export control.
