He joins ABB from Eaton Corporation, where he led its Critical Power Solutions division globally. He will be based in Memphis, Tenn., where ABB’s Electrification Products Americas division is headquartered.
“We are delighted to welcome Doug on board,” said Greg Scheu, head of ABB in the Americas. “Thomas & Betts is a great business, which is now fully integrated within ABB. We have a portfolio of strong product brands and a reputation for class-leading logistics. We are confident that he can take this business to the next level of success.”
