Oliver will take the helm on July 10, reporting direct to Tyco Chairman and CEO Ed Breen. He’ll be based in the Boca Raton, Fla., office.

“George’s extensive background across a broad range of product and service industries and geographies should enable him to acclimate rapidly and help maximize growth and performance for the business,” says Breen. “His appointment to lead Tyco Safety Products is consistent with our objective to create a more agile, focused organizational structure as we move closer to the separation of Tyco into three independent publicly traded companies.”

Before coming to Tyco, Oliver was responsible for several divisions at GE. His most recent position was president and CEO of GE Water and Process Technologies where he oversaw more than 7,000 employees working on a $2 billion water and process technologies product and services business. In addition, Oliver served as president and CEO of GE Engine Services.
