Rockwell's Glore Resigns to Become Iomega CEO

October 23, 1998| Bloomberg News

Jodie Glore, president and chief operating officer of Rockwell International Corp.'s largest unit, has resigned to become chief executive of Iomega Corp., a maker of data-storage products, the companies said Thursday.

Glore's duties at Rockwell are being assumed by Don Davis, the company's chief executive, until a successor is found "within the month," Rockwell said.

Rockwell is looking at several internal candidates to succeed Glore, 51, who led the company's Rockwell Automation, Reliance Electric, Dodge and Rockwell Software businesses.

Rockwell's automation business, which made up 60% of the Costa Mesa-based company's 1997 revenue of $7.76 billion, makes sensors, electric motors and other products for the transportation, semiconductor, electric-power and consumer-products industries.

Rockwell, the largest U.S. supplier of factory automation equipment, said Glore's departure was amicable. Glore will become a member of the board of Roy, Utah-based Iomega.
