Tata Technologies today announced Warren Harris will be promoted to CEO and Managing Director effective Sept. 9, 2014. Harris, formerly the company’s President and COO, succeeds the retiring Patrick McGoldrick, who spent over 20 years leading the global engineering services and product development company.

Warren is an effective leader who will take Tata Technologies forward in its next stage of growth,” said McGoldrick, who will continue providing counsel to the Board of Directors in retirement. “Warren is passionately committed to our vision, unique position in the market, our customers and our people. He is committed to improving himself, completing the Harvard Advanced Management Program (AMP) in 2011.He is committed to the Tata Group, heading the Tata Network Forum in the United States. He is committed to business excellence, as evidenced by his position on the Board of Overseers for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, and to our communities. And most importantly, he is committed to growth. I look forward to supporting Warren and the Company in the very exciting years ahead.”

During his 26-year tenure with the Company, Harris’ responsibilities have ranged from engineer to technical management in multiple geographies around the world. As President and COO, a position he held since 2005, Harris was responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations globally, including accelerating revenue growth and delivering value to customers.

Thanks to Pat’s stellar leadership, Tata Technologies is a global company well positioned to capitalize on the continued growth in the engineering services industry,” Harris said. “I’m excited to build on that solid foundation and help scale our business to $1 billion in revenue through intelligently differentiated services for our manufacturing clients around the globe.”

Tata Technologies Board of Directors Chairman S Ramadorai said, “Warren’s appointment ensures continuity of leadership as the Company accelerates growth as a strategic, full-service product development partner for clients in the automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery markets.

On behalf of the board, I want to thank Pat for his many years of outstanding leadership,” Ramadorai said. “One of the many things he has done so well at Tata Technologies is assemble a world-class leadership team. We are fortunate to have someone of Warren’s caliber stepping in to become the new CEO.”

While Harris brings a new perspective, McGoldrick leaves a legacy that dates back to the Company’s founding. His vision of applying technology to help manufacturers create better products led the Tata group, India’s largest business conglomerate, to establish Tata Technologies in 1994. He was instrumental in leading a steady global expansion through the strategic acquisitions and integration of INCAT, iKnowledge Solutions (iKS), and Cambric, as well as establishing a joint venture with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited to better serve aerospace clients. McGoldrick is retiring at age 65 per Tata group policy.
