UTC Fire & Security has announced changes to its senior leadership team. Mark Barry has been appointed President, Global Fire Products, succeeding Scott Buckhout, who was appointed President, UTC Fire & Security in late-March. Kelly Romano will succeed Barry as President, Global Security Products; both appointments effective immediately. UTC Fire & Security is a unit of United Technologies Corp.

Barry joined UTC Fire & Security in 2010 through the acquisition of GE Security and drove strong results in his previous position as President, Global Security Products. Barry has spent more than 20 years in the security and life safety industry, including senior leadership positions at Tyco, ADT, and most recently at GE Security.

“Mark’s deep industry and global experience positions him well to assume this critical leadership role in our fire products business,” said Scott Buckhout, President, UTC Fire & Security. Mark’s responsibility for Global Fire Products includes 27 factories and significant operations in North and South America, Western Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

Romano most recently served as UTC Fire & Security’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing. She joined UTC Fire & Security in 2010 from Carrier, where she held various senior leadership positions including President, Building Systems & Services and President, Carrier Distribution Americas. Romano brings more than 27 years of UTC broad-based experience to her new role, including expertise in general management, business development, customer relations and marketing.

“Kelly’s multiple general management roles, coupled with her strong customer focus and her broad experience in working with dealers, distributors and contractors, make her uniquely qualified for this leadership position in our Global Security Products business,” said Buckhout. Global Security Products is a global enterprise made up of four complementary businesses – Interlogix, Lenel, Onity and Supra – and a growing research, development and engineering footprint in a number of key geographies, including North America, Western Europe and India.

“We have a strong and talented management team with the expertise and experience to drive exceptional value for our customers, employees and investors,” said Buckhout.
