Opting for an insider, Rockwell International Corp. on Nov. 9 appointed longtime vp Keith Nosbusch as the new president of Rockwell Automation Control Systems (Milwaukee, Wis.). Mr. Nosbusch replaces former president and coo Jodie Glore, who resigned Oct. 22 to become president and ceo of Iomega (Roy, Utah.), which makes Zip and Jaz drives for PCs.

Mr. Nosbusch, 47, will report to Don Davis, Rockwell International's chairman and ceo. He was also named as a Rockwell International corporate senior vp and a corporate officer.

"Keith brings a wealth of experience, vitality, proven performance and customer knowledge to this position and will be an outstanding leader for this business. With this appointment, we have solidified our automation leadership team," says Mr. Davis "Keith personifies the depth of Rockwell Automation's leadership team. Both our employees and customers will benefit from his understanding of the market and the needs of the Control Systems organization."

Mr. Nosbusch has been senior vp of Rockwell Automation's Control & Information Group since 1996. From 1994-96, he served as vp of Rockwell Automation Control Logic. Before that, he was vp of the company's Presence Sensing Products division. Mr. Nosbusch joined Rockwell's automation business as a trainee in 1974, and advanced through a series of increasingly responsible positions in engineering and marketing. Mr. Nosbusch has a B.A. in electrical engineering and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin.

"I believe our strong customer relationships give us unique insight into what they need to be more efficient producers, given rapidly changing technology and competitive pressures. To help them be successful, we must continue to be a reliable partner with an understanding of our customers' complete automation needs from components to systems, and from front-end supply to back-end support," says Mr. Nosbusch. "I know we have the people and resources to provide the technical and commercial advantages our customers demand."

Rockwell Automation currently consists of two businesses: Milwaukee-based Control Systems, responsible for its Allen-Bradley products, Rockwell Software, systems solutions and value-added services; and Power Systems (Greenville, S.C.), which includes Reliance Electric motors and Dodge mechanical power transmission products. Previously called Motors & Mechanical Power Transmission Systems, Power Systems is led by Joseph Swann, president, who also reports to Mr. Davis.
