In January 2012, Waldron was promoted to serve as general manager for Honeywell’s scanning and mobility business in the Americas. After four months in the GM role, he was appointed president of the Honeywell business unit.

Waldron first joined Honeywell in 2004 as an intern. For four months, he worked as a finance intern within the company’s lighting and electronics business.

The longtime Honeywell executive leader is also experienced in the areas of product marketing, mergers and acquisitions, program management, financial modeling, integration and segmentation, among others.
