David M. Cote, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Dave Cote is chairman and CEO of Honeywell, a $37 billion diversified technology and manufacturing leader, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; turbochargers; and performance materials. He was elected president, CEO, and a member of Honeywell's Board in February 2002, and named chairman of the Board on July 1, 2002.
Under Cote's leadership over the past decade, Honeywell has delivered strong growth in sales, earnings per share, segment profit, and cash flow. Honeywell has great positions in good industries and more than 50 percent of the company’s sales are outside the U.S. Honeywell’s growth is driven by technologies that address global macro trends such as safety, security, energy efficiency and generation, and globalization. The company’s nearly 140,000 employees, including more than 20,000 scientists and engineers, are focused on developing innovative products and solutions that help Honeywell’s customers – and their customers – improve performance and productivity.

In 2010, Cote was named by President Barack Obama to serve on the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Cote was named co-chair of the U.S.-India CEO Forum by President Obama in 2009, and has served on the Forum since July 2005.

Peterson Award for Business Statesmanship from the Committee for Economic Development (CED) and the Distinguished Achievement Award from B’nai B’rith International in 2011.
He is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, where he earned a bachelor's degree in business administration. In 2009, Cote was made an honorary professor at the Beihang University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Beijing, China, and in 2011, Cote received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from his alma mater.
