New Delhi: United Technologies Corp, a diversified $52.9 billion global company, has named Zubin Irani as Senior Managing Director of the corporation's commercial companies in India.

In addition to announcing Zubin Irani's appointment, United Technologies also said it will open its first India headquarters office in Delhi, in June of this year. The new office will serve as a hub to identify partnership opportunities, oversee component localization efforts, develop M&A opportunities and to coordinate customer requests.

In his new role, Zubin Irani will be responsible for developing and leading strategies to accelerate growth of United Technologies' commercial companies in India, driving operational effectiveness and the development of local leadership.

"Our commercial companies' portfolio of products and services provides integrated support from project inception through implementation, and uniquely positions United Technologies to support the accelerated development of energy efficient buildings in India," said Ari Bousbib, worldwide President, UTC Commercial Companies. "Zubin's appointment reflects United Technologies' ongoing strategic investment in people, resources and infrastructure to evolve our commercial businesses and better serve our customers in India."
