CARMEL, Ind. - Ingersoll-Rand’s Security & Safety sector has a new man at the helm, with a former executive from Johnson Controls coming on board to head up this business unit.

Ingersoll-Rand announced this week that Michael Lamach has been named president of the company's Security & Safety Sector, beginning Feb. 16. In addition, he was elected senior vice president of Ingersoll-Rand by the company's board of directors.

Lamach replaces Randy Smith, who left his position as president of Ingersoll-Rand’s Security & Safety Sector in July of 2003 to take the same position within Ingersoll-Rand’s Climate Control Sector.

Lamach joins Ingersoll-Rand after 17 years with Johnson Controls. Most recently, he was group vice president and managing director for the European, Asian, South African and South American businesses of Johnson Controls' Automotive Group. Previously, he served as vice president and general manager of the Controls Group and led Johnson Controls’ integrated facilities management business.
