Johnson Controls has recently appointed Marlon Sullivan as Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). Sullivan earned his Bachelor’s degree in Corporate Finance from Morehouse College and his MBA from Harvard Business School. He reports to Johnson Controls’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Oliver.
Sullivan will work with retiring CHRO Lynn Minella on a smooth transition and handover. Minella had announced her intention to retire earlier this year after four and a half years of leading human resources at Johnson Controls.
Sullivan is based at the company’s North American headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, responsible for the overall Human Resources team. Prior to his role at Delta, Sullivan has served as a Vice President in HR with Abbott Laboratories, and his experience also includes HR roles of increasing responsibility with The Home Depot.
