On Nov. 8, Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote was honored with the Global Leadership Award at the Asia Society Awards Dinner in New York City. The award is presented to those who exemplify the mission and values of the Asia Society and serve as bridgebuilders between the people of Asia and the United States.
Dave was specifically recognized for his commitment to developing technologies that address global security, energy efficiency, and clean energy generation. His public service has been broad-ranging and impressive: he serves as Chairman of the Business Roundtable’s Energy and Environment Committee; Co-Chair of the US-India CEO Forum, and a member of the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. In 2009, Dave Cote was made an honorary professor at the Beihang University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Beijing.
Honeywell has continued to develop its core businesses in China and India, and has expanded operations to several other countries in the Asia-Pacific region including Japan, Australia, Thailand, and Malaysia.
