DAVIDSON, N.C., Aug. 26, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Sheila Tierney, vice president of product management for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) Parts & Supply Solutions at Ingersoll Rand was announced a winner of Diversity Journal’s 14th annual Women Worth Watching Award. Tierney is among 100 executives chosen for the esteemed honor and will be featured in Diversity Journal’s Summer 2015 issue.  

Nominated by their companies for positive influence, drive and passion, the 2015 Women Worth Watching Award recipients are leaders from corporations, government agencies and nonprofits across North America and Europe.

“Sheila is up for any challenge and exudes the bravery and tenacity to step outside her comfort zone to forge ahead as a leader, all while encouraging and supporting her teammates along the way,” said Scott Krull, president of HVAC Parts & Supply at Ingersoll Rand. “The risks that Sheila takes to achieve success are inspirational to young women entering the workforce and we are proud to have her represent the spirit of Ingersoll Rand through this award.”

Tierney joined Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, in 2010 after working internationally for Navistar. She was promoted in 2014 to vice president of product management of the HVAC Parts & Supply business, where she works directly with the Trane brand. Before serving in her current role, she led the Ingersoll Rand procurement organization through a transformation that delivered improved quality, productivity and new product development capability.

"Throughout our publication’s history, we’ve been encouraged by the growing number of organizations whose commitment to empower, support and promote women leadership is evident in those we honor ,” said James R. Rector, founder, chief executive officer and publisher of Diversity Journal. “We’re proud to be home to an award that so clearly signifies the importance of our work toward gender equity in the workforce.”

In 2014, Tierney was one of 160 recipients of The Manufacturing Institute's Women in Manufacturing Science, Technology, Engineering and Production (STEP) Awards honoring women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory-floor to the C-suite.
