Johnson Controls has confirmed that 38-year company veteran Jeff Williams is retiring and a global search is underway for his successor.

Williams' replacement will inherit a business group generating more than a third of Johnson Controls approximately $US24B annual revenues including product development and research & development.

Williams started at Johnson Controls in 1984 as a sales account manager and spent more than 30 years in its automotive business before taking over as leader of its global products business in 2019.

He was the co-author of the Johnson Controls Manufacturing Systems operating system that continues to guide the company's global operations today.

Johnson Controls Chair and CEO, George Oliver, said Williams has been a phenomenal member of the executive leadership team combining an unwavering will to win with faultless integrity.

"We thank him for his years of service, and he leaves the Global Products business in fantastic shape, with an amazing opportunity for a new leader to come in and drive forward,” Oliver said.
