HONEYWELL ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE PROMOTIONS, SENIOR-LEVEL REPORTING RELATIONSHIPS

 MINNEAPOLIS, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell Inc. (NYSE: HON) today announced several executive promotions as the company's new leaders outlined their senior-level reporting structure.
 In communications with employees around the world, Michael R. Bonsignore, chairman and chief executive officer, and Larry Moore, president and chief operating officer, said the new structure focuses responsibility in key areas and streamlines global decision-making. Bonsignore and Moore assumed their new positions this week.
 "These organizational changes reflect our commitment to Honeywell people, technology and continuous quality improvement," Bonsignore said. "Working with employees worldwide, this team will provide the leadership we need to grow profitably in a global marketplace."
 Among the functions reporting to Bonsignore, two executives have been promoted.
 Mannie Jackson, 54, was named senior vice president of marketing and administration. He will maintain his previous responsibility for relationships with key customers and have new responsibility for human resources and public affairs. Jackson, who joined Honeywell in 1968, has held management positions in several of the company's businesses, including experience in human resources, marketing and line operations. He most recently was senior vice president of development and customer alliances in the international and Home and Building Control areas of the company. Jackson will report to Bonsignore.
 Jim Porter, 41, was promoted to corporate vice president of human resources, a position that had been open since the retirement of Foss Boyle last year. Previously, Porter was director of human resources for Honeywell's Home and Building Control business. Porter joined Honeywell in 1980, and has held a number of human resources positions. He will report to Jackson.
 Dale Taylor, 48, was promoted to vice president of strategic planning. Taylor will oversee the company's long-term planning function. He will report to James J. Grierson, vice president of business development. Grierson also had been acting vice president of strategic planning. Taylor joined Honeywell in 1968 and has held several key positions in finance, accounting and administration. Most recently he has been vice president and staff executive for Honeywell's Space and Aviation business.

Larson, corporate vice president; Karen O. Bachman, vice president of communications; Edward D. Grayson, vice president and general counsel; James J.

 In addition, the company's chief financial officer will report to Bonsignore. That position is expected to be filled in coming weeks.
 Several promotions also were announced among the functions reporting directly to Moore.
 Carl Vignali was named senior vice president of operations. Vignali will assist Moore in leading Honeywell's worldwide operations. Vignali, 58, will move to Minneapolis from Clearwater, Fla., where he has been vice president and group executive of the company's Space Systems Group. Vignali joined Honeywell in 1959 and has held several engineering and management positions in the space business. He replaces Larson, who plans to retire later this year.
 Ron Peterson was promoted to vice president of technology, a newly created position with responsibility for Honeywell's entire research and development program. He will report to Vignali. Previously, Peterson was vice president and general manager of the company's Systems and Research Center and Solid State Electronic Center. Peterson joined Honeywell in 1972 and has held several research-related positions.
 Arnie Weimerskirch, 53, was promoted to vice president of quality, with expanded authority for implementing quality-improvement processes throughout the company.
