The Board of Directors of Ingersoll-Rand plc (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, today announced the appointment of John P. Surma, United States Steel Chairman and CEO, as a member of the Board, effective January 1, 2013.

John is an outstanding and accomplished leader who will bring us invaluable insights and judgment,” said Michael W. Lamach, Ingersoll Rand’s chairman and chief executive officer.

John P. Surma graduated from The Pennsylvania State University in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. Mr. Surma is a member of the Board of Directors of Marathon Petroleum Corporation. He was appointed by President Barack Obama to the president’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations and currently serves as vice chairman.

Additionally, he serves as treasurer of the Board of Directors of the World Steel Association and previously held the titles of Chairman and Vice Chairman.
