Honeywell has unveiled Richard Lattanzi as president of the company’s global security business and Dino Koutrouki as the new president of its global fire business. In their key leadership roles, Lattanzi and Koutrouki will drive greater customer focus. Both will continue to report to Michael Flink, president of Honeywell Security and Fire*.

“Serving our customers and growing our business are at the core of everything we do in our security and fire operations,” observed Flink. “Having two independent teams focused on their business will bring us closer to our customers, maximising our core strengths and enabling increased efficiencies. I’m confident that Richard and Dino will drive performance in their respective businesses to better serve our customers.”

As the new president of security, Lattanzi will be responsible for all operations, business strategy and growth for the global security business. He previously served as the vice-president and general manager for Honeywell Security and Fire Americas and, prior to that, held the position of global vice-president and general manager for buildings within Honeywell’s Environmental and Energy Solutions division.
