Judith F. Marks

President, Otis

Judith Marks

Judy Marks was appointed President of Otis in October 2017. A self-described technology zealot, Judy brings to the job an entrepreneur’s passion for reinventing businesses to better serve customers and grow into new markets. Her mission at Otis: to bring the energy of a startup to an iconic company that has led the industry it created for 165 years. 

“We have to stay focused on the future,” she says. “And we can’t be afraid to be impatient, because change is a good, inherently positive thing.” 

An engineer by training, Judy landed her first management job at 23. She went on to senior leadership roles at three global icons – IBM, Lockheed Martin and Siemens AG. She was serving as CEO of both Siemens USA and Dresser-Rand, a Siemens business, when recruited to run Otis. 

She built her career on a host of challenging assignments, creating solutions for both global customers and government entities. Judy is a big believer in the idea that technology exists to serve the common good. She applies digital technologies and uses social media to amplify the reach of her message. For Judy, leadership is about creating a sense of mission among employees. “People make a decision every day about what kind of work they’re going to do,” she says. “That’s what I love about Otis people – they know that what we do matters. With 68,000 colleagues operating in more than 1,000 branches across 200 countries and territories, we service 2 million units and touch 2 billion people every day to keep the world moving.”
