Colin Mahoney, a 26-year Rockwell Collins (NYSE: COL) and a vice president, will succeed Greg Churchill as executive vice president for international and service solutions.
Mahoney’s appointment is effective immediately as Churchill will retire from the company in March after a 30-year career there, the company said Friday.
Prior to this appointment, Mahoney served as VP of sales, marketing and support for the commercial systems segment and held other leadership and business development positions in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
He will report to President Kelly Ortberg in his new role.
Mahoney brings a global perspective and business development experience to his new role as the company is aiming to grow in global markets, Ortberg said.
Churchill held his most recent position since February 2010 and has also served as EVP and chief operating officer for government systems and as the segment’s VP of business development.
He has also served as VP and GM for business and regional systems.
“Greg has had a long record of accomplishment and made enduring contributions to Rockwell Collins throughout his distinguished career, ” said Clay Jones, chairman and CEO.
