Honeywell has appointed William Yu as President of Honeywell China. Yu will continue to service as Vice-President and General Manager of Asia Pacific for Honeywell’s Performance Materials and Technologies (PMT) business. He joined the company in January 2017 and under his leadership, the PMT China business grew by more than 50% over the past two years. Yu implemented a strong ‘east-for-east’ business strategy and tripled PMT revenue coming from that initiative in China.
“Honeywell is a worldwide leader in developing state-of-the-art technologies for the Industrial Internet of Things, and our long history of innovation in China has been a critical part of the company’s success,” said Shane Tedjarati, President of Honeywell global High Growth Regions. “William has a proven leadership track record across multiple businesses and industries and is the right person to drive our business’ continued growth across China.”
