Ingersoll Rand promotes from within and names Turtz new GC to replace Green
The Irish-American manufacturing company Ingersoll Rand has promoted Evan Turtz to senior vice president and general counsel, effective immediately. He will serve as an officer of the company and be responsible for strategic leadership and oversight of Ingersoll Rand’s legal and compliance affairs worldwide.
Turtz succeeds Maria Green, who will retire in June. Green served as Ingersoll Rand’s senior vice president and general counsel since joining the company in 2015.
The company hired Turtz in 2004 and has had various legal jobs there since then. Most recently, he served as Ingersoll Rand’s deputy general counsel and corporate secretary, and general counsel for Ingersoll Rand’s Industrial businesses. Before that, he led Ingersoll Rand’s labor and employment practice, and has also been its litigation chief. Before his Ingersoll Rand stint, Turtz was in private practice, most recently at McCarter & English. He holds a J.D. from the Washington University School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
“Evan has strong expertise in corporate law and governance matters, and a deep knowledge of our businesses and global markets,” said Michael Lamach, chairman and chief executive of Ingersoll Rand. “His breadth of legal experience and sound counsel make him a terrific addition to our executive leadership team as we continue to grow our company sustainably.”
