“Bob has demonstrated vision and leadership in growing our core business and meeting our customers’ needs. His strategic vision, leadership track record, passion for building and empowering teams, and ability to work across the company position him well to lead our agile supply chain organization,” Moret said.

Most recently, he was Vice President and General Manager of the Power Control Business within the Intelligent Devices operating segment, overseeing global operations and developing and implementing strategic direction for this critical area, Rockwell said.
