Description

A memorandum from Thomas E. Campbell regarding recent appointments and realignments of Westinghouse Electric Corporation's Generation Technology Systems Division (GTSD) in 1987. The Steam Turbine Generator Division (STGD) was taking shape under the management team led by General Manager Dr. Stan Quick (under E. J. "Gene" Cattabiani, Vice President of the Power Generation Group) through the changes in management leadership of the team of Bob Ractcliffe and Howard Pierce, Tom Campbell (under Nat Woodsen and Jim Moore), Frank R. Bakos of the Power Generation Business Unit (PGBU), and Randy H. Zwirn, who remained at the executive level for 20 years, through the PGBU acquisition in 1998.

Originally called the Westinghouse Electric Company, George Westinghouse (1846-1914) founded his manufacturing company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on January 8, 1886. In 1889, he renamed his business The Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company. Westinghouse's primary products include turbines, generators, motors and switchgear related to the generation, transmission, and use of electricity. The company changed its name to Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1945. In 1981, the company began to relocate its division headquarters for the Steam-Turbine Generator Divisions from Pennsylvania (turbines from Lester and generators from Pittsburgh) to Orlando. The PGBU building was located in The Quadrangle, at 4400 Alafaya Trail.
