Zurich, Switzerland

ABB announced today that Jessica Mitchell has been appointed Head of Investor Relations effective November 15, 2017, reporting to the company’s Chief Financial Officer, Timo J. Ihamuotila. She succeeds Alanna Abrahamson, who has been appointed CFO of ABB’s Industrial Automation division. Abrahamson will assume her new role as of March 1, 2018, after a smooth transition in Investor Relations.

“Jessica Mitchell is a seasoned IR professional, who brings a wealth of experience to the role. Her deep understanding of the industrial value chain will be extremely helpful in improving investors’ and analysts’ understanding of how we add value to our customers’ businesses.”
