Allied-Signal Inc., formed last week by the merger of Allied Corp. and Signal Cos., assigned Executive Vice President Paul M. Montrone responsibility for overseeing financial, planning, investor relations and audit functions as well as a new corporate services group. He will assume the planning and development, investor relations and audit functions supervised by Harold W. Buirkle, executive vice president-administration, who is retiring. Nicholas A. Cameron, who was named senior vice president-planning and development, will report to Montrone, as will Arthur H. Brockie, staff vice president-investor relations, and Curtis A. Bower, director-audits. Also reporting to Montrone will be Donald R. Kayser, senior vice president and chief financial officer, and Marc I. Stern, senior vice president, who will head a new corporate service group.
Until the organizational structure of the operating sectors is decided, President Michael D. Dingman will assume responsibility for Signal's engineered products group, which Montrone formerly headed, said Edward L. Hennessy Jr., chairman of the Morris Township, N.J.-based firm.
