Björn Rosengren, the CEO of ABB, said, “Both Giampiero and Brandon are proven leaders with strong track records in their current roles, driving profitable growth in two of our largest Divisions. I am particularly happy that we are appointing internal candidates – this shows the strength of ABB’s pool of senior leaders. I am confident that they will build on the strong performance achieved in Electrification and Motion over the past years.”

Morten Wierod, the CEO designate, added, “I am excited to work with Giampiero and Brandon also in their new roles when I take over as ABB CEO later this year. With them, we will continue to have a strong Executive Committee that will drive ABB’s financial and sustainability performance.”
