Resideo Technologies has confirmed the appointment of Tom Surran as the President of its Products & Solutions business, effective immediately.
The company says that Surran will be responsible for all aspects of its Products & Solutions business, including innovation, engineering, new product development, product management, customer experience, sales and operations.
He will report to CEO, Jay Geldmacher, and serve on the executive management team.
“We are excited to have a leader like Tom joining Resideo,” commented Geldmacher.
“He has an extensive track record of delivering results, executing on strategic initiatives and driving product innovation.
“His initial priorities will center around accelerating the pace of our new product development, optimizing our product management capabilities as well as applying his expertise in global operations.
“Bringing in a leader with Tom’s background and skillset is an important next step as we continue to execute on the company’s long-term strategy to transform the business through structural realignment as well as investment in key products and services.”
Surran previously served as Chief Operating Officer at FLIR, overseeing engineering, manufacturing, logistics and sales.
In this role, he drove profitability improvements through business process standardization, organizational realignment and product development.
Prior to that role, Surran was the General Manager for FLIR’s Raymarine business unit where he overhauled product development processes and revitalized the business through new platform-based products.
Surran reduced the development time for Raymarine’s new products from the prior multi-year timelines to less than one year.
Surran succeeds current Resideo Products & Solutions President Phil Theodore, who will move into a new role as Senior Vice President, Executive Advisor.
