Sohovich is a company executive who has held positions in several of its business divisions and a former Naval officer. As president of Honeywell Security & Communications for the Americas, she will report to Ron Rothman, president of Honeywell Security Group.

From the release:

“JoAnna brings an accomplished leadership background as well as years of experience growing multiple Honeywell businesses,” Rothman said in a prepared statement. “I look forward to working with JoAnna, as we continue to introduce innovative, new products and build on the great legacy that began many years ago with the ADEMCO brand.”

Sohovich previously held positions in Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions (ACS), Honeywell Aerospace and Honeywell Specialty Materials. Most recently, Sohovich was the vice president and general manager of Commercial Control Systems, a business within Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls.

Sohovich served as an officer in the United States Navy and holds a bachelor’s degree from the United States Naval Academy and a master’s in business administration from Santa Clara University.

“I’m honored to lead a business with such a rich history in the security industry, and one that has long been regarded as a leader in intrusion technology,” Sohovich said in a prepared statement. “There are exciting new developments in this industry that will greatly shape the way today’s homes and businesses are secured, and I’m looking forward to working with our dealers and integrators to help usher in these new technologies.”

Honeywell Security & Communications supplies security and fire controls, sensors and alarm communications products designed to help security dealers design end-to-end solutions for a wide range of residential and commercial customers.

I’ve got a call into Honeywell requesting an interview with Sohovich.
