Honeywell Names New President and Brand Manager

Honeywell, owner of Original Muck Boot Company, Xtratuf and Ranger, announced Monday it had made two changes to top management at its footwear business.

Sean O’Brien will serves as the company’s president of global retail business, while Michelle Hogue joins the team as senior global brand manager for footwear.

O’Brien, who joined Honeywell in 2011, will be tasked with growing all retail footwear brands for the company. He will lead product development, marketing, sourcing, e-commerce, sales and customer service.

Hogue joins Honeywell from home products company Shark Ninja, having spent over 10 years prior working in marketing and product development at Hasbro. In her new role, Hogue will be responsible for the global brand positioning and strategic direction for Honeywell’s retail footwear brands.

“The expanded leadership team embodies the spirit and the values of the Honeywell brand,” said O’Brien. “I am honored to be working alongside a strong group of individuals whose experience will give us the opportunity to continue to grow our customer base and gain market share throughout our various retail channels.”
