Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders
Audio – Liking that “first-mover” status
Adriane Brown, president and chief executive of Honeywell Transportation Systems, has had a pretty good year.
In July, Brown’s group was chosen to manufacture new turbochargers for Ford vehicles, which will be used on Ford’s forthcoming 2010 Lincoln MKS with EcoBoost. The V-6 engine will offer performance comparable to a V-8, while using less fuel.
Less fuel is good — especially when gasoline (and just about everything else, for that matter) now costs so much more.
What’s more for Brown’s group? More business, she hopes
As the attached audio clip shows, her team is looking to generate even more business in the coming years for Honeywell’s turbochargers.
Brown was one of the featured speakers at this year’s Reuters Autos Summit, which runs through Thursday in Detroit. Next up for Reuters summits will be our first Reuters Restructuring Summit on Sept. 22-26 in New York and London.
