Ingersoll Rand, a global provider of mission-critical flow creation and life science and industrial solutions, has announced Scott Watson, former Chief Operating Officer of ILC Dover, to serve as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Life Science Technologies platform, effective immediately.

Scott Watson has been named Senior Vice President and General Manager of Ingersoll Rand’s Life Science Technologies platform.


Scott is responsible for delivering ILC’s global strategy across commercial, operations and new product development activities, and as of Jan. 1, 2025, leadership over the legacy Ingersoll Rand medical business.

As Chief Operating Officer for ILC, the world-leader in the design and production of highly innovative solutions across life science end markets, Scott was responsible for the day-to-day strategy and execution of the company’s global operations, end-to-end supply chain and manufacturing processes, which led to the company’s operational and financial strength.
