Ingersoll Rand Names Janet Pfeffer As Treasurer

Ingersoll-Rand plc (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, appointed Janet Pfeffer as vice president, treasury and investor relations, effective immediately. As treasurer of Ingersoll Rand, Pfeffer will have global responsibility for all treasury operations, including capital markets, cash management, foreign exchange risk management, pensions and insurance management. Pfeffer has been with Ingersoll Rand for six years.

“Janet has demonstrated breadth and proficiency through her service in a number of leadership roles over her six year history with the company,” said Steve Shawley, senior vice president and chief financial officer for Ingersoll Rand. “She has deep knowledge of Ingersoll Rand and I am confident she will continue to play a critical role as she leads our treasury group, as well as investor relations.”

Pfeffer succeeds Patrick Shannon, who will serve as senior vice president and chief financial officer for Allegion, the new, standalone global security company to be created upon its separation from Ingersoll Rand later this year.

Pfeffer joined Ingersoll Rand in October 2007 as vice president, finance for the Industrial Technologies Sector. For the last three years, she has been serving as vice president, strategy, business development and investor relations for Ingersoll Rand.

Pfeffer has more than 30 years of experience in finance leadership positions. Prior to joining Ingersoll Rand, she worked for United Technologies for 17 years in finance, strategy and business development roles. Her career also includes audit and consulting positions at Ernst & Young. She has a master’s in business administration from Boston University and a bachelor of science degree from Southern Methodist University.
