President and CEO Aerospace
Mike Madsen became President and CEO of Honeywell Aerospace in October 2019. Based in Phoenix, Honeywell Aerospace products and services are found on virtually every commercial, defense and space aircraft, and its hardware and software solutions create more fuel-efficient aircraft, more direct and on-time flights, and safer skies and airports. Madsen has held a variety of executive roles over more than three decades in the business, leading multi-billion-dollar business units as well as global support functions. He is a change agent with a long track record of strong results in difficult environments and multiple disciplines.
Madsen most recently served as Vice President, Integrated Supply Chain, for Honeywell Aerospace, with broad responsibility for the business’s global supply chain and manufacturing facilities. Prior to that, he was President, Honeywell Aerospace Defense and Space, a $5.1 billion business that serves original equipment manufacturer (OEM), aftermarket, military, government agency and commercial helicopter segments internationally. Before that, Madsen was Vice President of the Airlines Customer Business team within the Air Transport and Regional (AT&R) business. He advanced to that role after serving as Vice President for AT&R’s Regional Aircraft and Aero Component business.
