Ingersoll Rand Names Santiago Arias Duval as Interim Leader for Global Precision & Science Technologies Business Segment

September 7, 2023

Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE: IR) today announced Santiago Arias Duval, vice president and general manager of Life Sciences, to serve as the interim business leader for the global Precision & Science Technologies (PST) business segment, effective immediately. Enrique Minarro Viseras, who previously served as the senior vice president and general manager of PST, will depart the company on September 8, 2023 to pursue an external opportunity.

While the company considers internal and external candidates for a permanent appointment, Santiago will be responsible for delivering the global PST strategy across commercial, operations, and new product development activities. In addition, he will drive the ongoing execution of PST’s inorganic growth strategy as we continue to build a premier market leader in niche pump and compression technologies.

As a proven leader with more than 15 years of experience, Santiago has extensive experience in managing and growing diverse businesses in the life sciences and industrial sectors. Since joining Ingersoll Rand in 2017, Santiago has held multiple leadership positions across the company, including serving as the general manager of the MP Pumps and Oberdorfer industrial pump businesses, vice president of Life Sciences North America, and the global vice president and general manager of the vacuum and liquid handling businesses. In addition, Santiago has strong inorganic growth experience as he has led and integrated several acquisitions since joining Ingersoll Rand, including MP Pumps, Air Dimensions, and Zinsser North America.

His experience and strong discipline across business functions (operations, product management, and commercial sales) and execution of M&A makes him well-suited for driving business continuity for PST during this transition.

“We thank Enrique for his leadership and contributions made during his tenure,” said Vicente Reynal, chairman and chief executive officer. “Santiago has demonstrated deep industry knowledge, strategy execution, and technical expertise that can help propel the business forward. We are confident he is the right person to lead PST during this transition.”

Prior to Ingersoll Rand, Santiago held leadership roles at Danaher and General Motors. In addition, he co-founded a startup targeting micro cold-storage products to solve perishability issues within Indian fruit and vegetable supply chains.

Santiago holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Master of Business Administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
