Ingersoll Rand promotes attorney to general counsel

Apr 09, 2019
Maria Green is retiring in June

Ingersoll Rand has promoted Evan Turtz to become senior vice president and general counsel, effective immediately. In that role, he is responsible for strategic leadership and oversight of the company’s legal and compliance efforts globally.

Turtz succeeds Maria Green, who will retire in June. Green has served as senior vice president and general counsel since joining Ingersoll Rand four years ago. Before that, she was senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary for Illinois Tool Works. Earlier in her career, Green worked at the Chicago Transit Authority, Amtrak and in private legal practice.

Turtz joined Ingersoll Rand in 2004, most recently working as the company’s deputy general counsel and corporate secretary, and general counsel for Ingersoll Rand’s industrial businesses. Previously, he headed up the company’s labor and employment practice, and has also served as director of litigation. Before joining the company he worked with law firms including McCarter & English.

The moves are not the first changes in the company’s senior legal ranks in recent months. Angel Willis, who had previously served as vice president and deputy general counsel at Ingersoll Rand leading strategic legal transactions and legal affairs for Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa, in January became vice president, general counsel and secretary at Sealed Air Corporation.

‘Evan has strong expertise in corporate law and governance matters, and a deep knowledge of our businesses and global markets,’ Ingersoll Rand chair and CEO Michael Lamach says in a statement.

He adds: ‘Maria has contributed greatly as a trusted adviser and member of our leadership team. Ingersoll Rand has benefited from her extensive experience in corporate law, [M&A] and governance, as well as her commitment to talent stewardship. On behalf of everyone at Ingersoll Rand, I congratulate Maria on her distinguished career and wish her well in retirement.’
