Honeywell Chairman and CEO, Dave Cote, recently awarded the honor of Honeywell Hometown “Ambassador of the Year” to five employees from around the world for their commitment to building awareness of Honeywell programs and their service representing Honeywell to their respective local and national governments. The Honeywell Hometown Ambassador program was launched in 2009 to strengthen outreach, build relationships, and educate local and national government officials on Honeywell projects, technologies and the tough challenges that it aims to address around the globe – energy efficiency, clean energy generation, globalization and safety and security.
