Tony Black, president of Otis Elevator (China) Investment Co., Ltd. (OCL), has been honored with the Tianjin municipal government’s 2014 Haihe Friendship Award. Black was selected by a panel led by the Tianjin Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs for his role in fostering innovation, developing local talent and leading corporate social responsibility initiatives.

The annual Haihe Friendship Award recognizes 10 expatriates for their contribution to Tianjin. The fellow award winners include the economist Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum and special adviser to Nankai University, and other leaders from organizations such as Airbus, Samsung and Tianjin University.

“The award means a lot to me and our company. It is both an honor and a call to action,” said Black. “This year marks the 30th anniversary of Otis establishing its first joint venture in China. I will continue to build on my three decades of experience at Otis and its parent company, United Technologies Corp. with continued contributions to Tianjin and to China.”

Since becoming OCL president in April 2012, Black was instrumental in bringing the advanced Otis manufacturing technology and management model to the Otis TEDA center, the company’s world-class manufacturing hub in the Tianjin Economic-Technical Development Area (TEDA); introducing the innovative Otis Metro Maintenance Management System (OM³S) and Otis Eagle Service in Tianjin to enhance the efficiency and quality of Otis maintenance service; emphasizing the cultivation of local talent; and strengthening focus on safety education and environmental improvement.
