Honeywell Realigns Security Management

Honeywell is realigning the management structure of its unit that includes its security businesses, beginning with the promotion Jan. 5 of former Ademco President Roger Fradin as the new president and CEO of its Automation and Control Solutions business.

Fradin becomes an executive officer with the company, replacing Kevin Gilligan, who resigned for what Honeywell says was to “to pursue leadership opportunities outside the company.”

Fradin had been serving as president of Honeywell’s Automation and Control Products (ACP), which included security, sensing and control, fire, and environmental and combustion controls products. Fradin had been reporting to Gilligan, but in a change in management structure, the leaders of the ACP businesses will continue to report directly to Fradin, along with the other two divisions of the $7 billion Control Solutions business – Industry Solutions and Service.

Fradin’s ties to Honeywell go back to when he joined Pittway Corp. in 1976 and served as president of its Ademco division from 1985 to 2000. Honeywell acquired Pittway in December 1999.

PSA Security Network Opens Up Annual Conference to Nonmembers

For the first time, the PSA Security Network is opening up its annual conference and expo to nonmembers. The move is part of PSA combining its expo with the National Systems Contractors Association’s (NSCA) Systems Integration Expo.

The combined PSA/NSCA event will take place from March 15-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. PSA will host the Security and Life Safety pavilion at the NSCA expo. PSA’s conference had been held the past 15 years in Denver as a members-only event.

“With the move to Las Vegas, PSA now has infinite expansion possibilities, both with hotel rooms and space on the show floor,” says PSA President Bill Bozeman.
