Passing the Keys

Berra introduced new Emerson Process Management Business Leader Steve Sonnenberg calling him someone he has complete confidence in, tossed him the keys to the business and exited the stage to a standing ovation.

Sonnenberg said many people have asked him about changes that he would make. “Why change something that works,” he answered. “We plan everything at Emerson, including management changes. The company values longevity and I’ll still have John around as a mentor.” Berra will continue with the company as Chairman and will work with customers, develop strategy and drive technical innovation.

Sonnenberg listed his four core values: provide quality products and services, continue to bring innovation, drive a sense of urgency and do things right. “I commit that I will use these values to drive my decisions,” he concluded.
