 NORMAN BODINE NAMED PRESIDENT OF UNITED TECHNOLOGIES AUTOMOTIVE
 DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Norman R. Bodine has been named president of United Technologies Automotive Inc. (UTA), a global automotive supplier based in Dearborn.
 Dr. Bodine's appointment, effective immediately, was announced today by George David, executive vice president and president, commercial/industrial, for United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), UTA's parent company based in Hartford, Conn.
 Bodine, 49, succeeds Ralph E. Reins, who resigned Nov. 6, 1991, to become president of Allied-Signal Automotive and an executive vice president of Allied-Signal Inc. David had served as UTA's acting president since Reins' resignation.
 Since June 1991, Bodine had been president of UTA's electrical systems business unit, which designs and manufactures automotive wiring systems, switches, electronics and DC motors at 36 North American manufacturing plants. He joined UTA in 1984 as president of its Automotive Products Division, with broad global responsibilities.
 "Norm's long-time tenure at UTA, and his stature and career-long experience in the automotive components business, amply qualify him for this important position," David said.
 David said UTA will continue to strengthen its presence in Europe through its newly organized European headquarters in Paris. Similarly, he said, UTA will work to develop its decentralized North American businesses, which now number five -- interior systems and components; wiring systems; input controls; motor systems; and hose, fittings and industrial products.
 Before joining UTA, Bodine was president of Prestolite Co., then a unit of Allied's Bendix Division.
 A native of Schenectady, N.Y., Bodine has three academic degrees in physics -- a bachelor's from the University of Michigan and a master's and doctorate from the University of Washington. He also completed Cornell University's Executive Development Program. He lives in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.
 UTA, which had 1990 sales of $2.5 billion, is a major supplier of electrical and interior trim systems and components to car and truck manufacturers worldwide. It is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), which provides a broad range of high-technology products and support services to the aerospace, building systems and automotive industries.
