When Honeywell International, Inc. announced its plans to spin-off its resins and chemicals business into a separate publicly traded company called AdvanSix Inc. last May, the manufacturing giant was tasked to appoint a new set of leaders to ensure a smooth transition.

Among the group of C-Suite stakeholders launching AdvanSix Inc. is Broad College of Business alumni Jacqueline Grunwald (maiden name Wright, FTMBA IS/Supply Chain ’01).

Grunwald joined Honeywell over 16 years ago and serves as the director of information technology (IT). In that capacity, she oversees IT solutions and strategy for Honeywell’s finance, sales, marketing, and business intelligence. She is also the functional transformation leader for Honeywell’s transportation systems business.

As part of the senior leadership team, Grunwald stood among her AdvanSix colleagues to ring the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, October 7.

Following the spinoff, AdvanSix is the leading manufacturer of Nylon 6, a material used to produce engineered plastics, fibers, filaments and films that, in turn are used to produce automotive and electronic components, carpets, sports apparel, fishing nets and food and industrial packaging.
