History

On January 12, 2011, Xylem's parent, ITT Corporation announced its plan to separate the company into three, stand-alone publicly traded, independent companies". The future water company was named Xylem, pronounced zi-lem. (The name "Xylem", derived from classical Greek, is the tissue that transports water in plants.) It comprises three business units – Water Solutions, Analytics, and Applied Water Systems.

ITT Corporation spun off its defense businesses into a company named ITT Exelis, and retained its corporate name, logo and "Engineered for life" company tagline for its other activities.

In March 2014, Patrick Decker succeeded Steven R. Loranger as the CEO and president of Xylem. Loranger was Chairman, President and CEO of ITT Corporation when it spun its water businesses off as Xylem in October 2011.
