E. Van Cullens has resigned the position of president and COO of Harris Corp., citing personal reasons.
"We are grateful for Van's leadership and assistance during his three-year stay at Harris," said Phillip W. Farmer, chairman and CEO of Harris Corp.
Farmer will resume the dual role of CEO and COO, which he held until May 1999.
Harris states that the management change will not affect Harris' repositioning actions that are currently underway or its strategy to become one integrated company with a single focus on communications equipment.
"The consolidation of the CEO and COO roles does not signal any change in the overall strategy of the company," said Farmer. "We are making good progress in both operating units and staff functions within the company and it's imperative that the progress continues.
"We will sharpen the focus on the operating performance of our five divisions. That control now will be streamlined with a direct reporting line from the operating divisions rolls out it's the company's chief operating officer."
Farmer stated that Van Cullens was instrumental in the successful repositioning of the Harris in the past three years of Van Cullens leadership.
