  • Company
    ITT
  • Title
    CEO and President

A 2011 spinoff that shed its water and military-technology units shaped ITT into its current form: a manufacturer of specialty components for the energy, transportation, and industrial markets. Denise Ramos, who assumed the CEO job during the split, has proved that ITT can be a profitable company on its own. In the past 12 months, the company has reported sales growth of almost 14% and its shares have increased by 10%. The firm’s brightest spots? Automotive brake pads in Europe, a growing market share in China, and oil and gas project pumps in North America, Latin America, and the Middle East. —C.Z.
