Farmington's United Technologies Corp. has named Judy Marks as president of Otis, which makes elevators, escalators and moving walkways.

Marks -- the first woman to run any business unit at UTC -- joins the company from Siemens, where she served as CEO of Siemens USA and as CEO of Dresser-Rand, a Siemens business, a UTC spokesman said.

Effective later this month, she replaces Philippe Delpeche, who had been in the post since 2015 and left the company in late July for another opportunity in Europe. Two vice presidents had temporarily served as interim presidents, the spokesman said.

Marks will report to UTC CEO Greg Hayes and serve on the company's senior leadership team.

Hayes called Marks "an innovator and accomplished global leader with a proven record of driving strategic growth."
