MORRISTOWN, N.J. - Michael Apperson has left his position as vice president and general manager of the Engineering Thermoplastics Group of AlliedSignal Inc. Apperson said he decided to move on in his career and parted amicably from AlliedSignal on Aug. 9.
Kevin Byrne, director of sales and marketing for the Americas, has been named interim general manager until a replacement for Apperson is found.
Apperson joined the Morristown company in February 1993 as sales director, and was charged with reorganizing its operations and sales. He said he helped the group increase sales to $400 million a year from $170 million and triple income.
``After having done that, it made sense for me to consider other options,'' he said, including a potential move into another industry.
