Honeywell exec serves as Cabot Resident


Mary Carter '77, vice president of Human Resources for Home and Building Control, Honeywell Inc., delivered a keynote address Nov. 7 as part of the university's Arthur R. Cabot Executive Residency program.

Carter received her bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing and textiles from UW-Stout. Her career began with Honeywell as a HVAC service sales representative in Chicago for what is currently the Home and Building Control business. She has held various positions with Honeywell, assuming her present position in July 1993 as the youngest vice president ever appointed to the executive level of Honeywell.

Her community leadership has included a five-year appointment by the U.S. Secretary of Education as chair to Gallaudet University's National Advisory Committee of the Model Secondary School for the Deaf.

While on campus, Carter attended a computer aided manufacturing class presentation. She spoke to the international business, employee involvement and organizational leadership classes. She also met with the Women in Engineering and Science student organization.

The Cabot Executive Residency program is named in memory of Arthur R. Cabot, who was a successful pet products manufacturer. Cabot's son, Scott, is a 1978 UW-Stout graduate and president of Vanguard Consulting Group, Deerfield, Ill. He was present for Carter's keynote address.

As Cabot Executives, major corporate leaders spend one or several days on campus during which they are involved in faculty development, interaction with classes, seminars and open presentations. Cabot reflected, "This is a program which offers both faculty and students a chance to meet with individuals who have successful careers in industry. Mary Carter exemplifies the ideal candidate. She has experiences in all aspects of the industry."
