Mike Kuchenbrod, currently head of ITT’s China & India business, has been named president of the Water & Wastewater unit headquartered in Sweden. Water & Wastewater includes the Flygt, Sanitaire, Leopold, Godwin and Wedeco brands.
Bob Wolpert, president of ITT’s Flow Control business, will take charge of the China & India business, in addition to his current responsibilities.
Kuchenbrod and Wolpert will report directly to Gretchen McClain who will serve as the chief executive officer of the new standalone water company.
"Our planned creation of a new water company gives us a unique opportunity to build a team and structure that will bolster our global growth strategy, and I’m pleased to have leaders like Mike and Bob to step into these two key roles at this critical point in our journey," McClain said. "Both bring decades of leadership experience and a global perspective to their new positions."
