Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has named James D. Morris group president of the company’s Integrated Network Solutions business, reporting to Harris President and CEO William M. Brown.

In this role, Morris, 47, is responsible for leading the Integrated Network Solutions business, which includes Harris CapRock Communications, Harris Healthcare Solutions and Harris IT Services.

It provides a variety of trusted networking capabilities to support government, energy, healthcare, and other commercial markets, including mission-critical end-to-end IT services, managed satellite and terrestrial communications solutions, and healthcare interoperability solutions.

Morris brings to Harris nearly 20 years of experience successfully developing and executing growth strategies for global commercial enterprises. He joins Harris from Western Digital Corporation, where he held domestic and international leadership positions of increasing responsibility since joining the company in 2001. He most recently served as executive vice president and general manager for four of the company’s commercial product businesses, with $7 billion in total revenue. Previously he helped revitalize the company’s notebook and desktop operations, guiding WD to industry leadership in both segments.

Morris also served as a senior engagement manager with McKinsey and Company in its Chicago and Johannesburg offices. Prior to his business career he served as an intelligence officer with the U.S. Army and was awarded a Bronze Star in Operation Desert Storm. He received a bachelor of science degree from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, majoring in International Relations, and a master in business administration degree from Northwestern University.

“We are thrilled to have Jim join the Harris leadership team,” said Brown. “His breadth of experience leading global technology operations, combined with his deep expertise in strategy development and background in the U.S. military, will be a tremendous asset to Harris. As a member of our leadership team, he will play an important role in helping us achieve our strategy of growing our commercial and international businesses.”
