Under his strong leadership, Honeywell’s APAC Commercial Aviation business demonstrated consistent growth while supporting a broad network of aviation and aerospace partners, customers and key stakeholders. Under Davis, Honeywell recently established its Aerospace aftermarket headquarters in Malaysia, with key decision-making level executives in place to accelerate response time to customers.
