PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 5, 2015) ― Steven Delarge has been promoted to chief executive officer and president of LIXIL Water Technology Americas, effective October 1, 2015.

“Steve, as chief financial officer of American Standard Brands and LIXIL Water Technology Americas, was asked to step into the interim CEO role at the beginning of this year, as we worked through the process of identifying the right leader for the organization,” said David Haines, chief executive officer of LIXIL Water Technology.

“During his tenure, he has continued to provide sound leadership and business results whilst we developed the leadership teams for sales, marketing, engineering, supply chain, legal and human resources.”

He joined the Company in July 2012 as senior vice president and chief financial officer. In this role, he was responsible for financial and strategic planning, complex business and tax issues, annual operating budget development and management, accounting, treasury and financial operations, compliance and governance.

Prior to joining American Standard, Delarge held various senior executive positions at Momentive Performance Materials and led the carve-out of this $2 billion General Electric business into private equity ownership. Before this, he spent more than 25 years with General Electric in financial and planning roles for numerous operating units of that company, which included working globally and living in Latin America and China.

Delarge holds a B.S. in economics and government from Saint Lawrence University.
