Farmington elevator maker Otis Worldwide Corp. announced this week that its board of directors has named company President and CEO Judy Marks as chair.

She will begin the post Feb. 3, 2022. Marks was named CEO in  June 2019.

Marks will succeed Chris Kearney, who plans to remain on the board. Kearney has served as the board’s executive chair since Otis became an independent, publicly traded company in April 2020.

John Walker will continue in the role of lead independent director.

"Judy has proven to be an exceptional leader – setting a vision, creating an environment of success, removing obstacles and driving results," Walker said. "We are confident in her ongoing leadership of the Otis business, and now the Board, as together we continue to lead the industry that we created more than 168 years ago."
