ABB appoints new managing director for Gulf

ABB, a leading power and automation technology group, has appointed Mostafa AlGuezeri as its new managing director for operations in the UAE and Gulf countries.

AlGuezeri replaces Frank Duggan, who holds the dual role of managing director for UAE and Gulf countries as well as president of the Asia, Middle East and Africa region. As announced earlier this week, Duggan will become president of the Europe region for ABB, said a statement from the company.

In his new role, AlGuezeri will lead the ABB business with a key focus on strengthening relationships with its customers in the utility, industry, transportation and infrastructure sectors, to help accelerate sustainable value creation and ensure efficient operation of their businesses, it said.

Duggan said: “AlGuezeri brings a wealth of experience to the role and to the region, where he has worked in ABB for the last twenty years. He was most recently country managing director for ABB in Qatar.”

“ABB is ideally positioned to make even greater contributions to the sustainable growth of the UAE and to deliver on the relevant areas of the country’s Vision 2021 plan,” he said.

Under the company’s global ‘Next Level’ corporate strategy, a key driver for ABB in the UAE and Gulf countries will be the successful deployment of ABB Ability, the group’s digital offering that builds on its pioneering technology and more than four decades of industrial digital leadership. It will enhance customers’ ability to innovate and compete in the emerging digital-industrial marketplace and the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, said a statement.

By combining ABB’s deep domain expertise with network connectivity and the latest digital technologies and innovations, ABB Ability creates powerful solutions and services that solve real business problems and produce tangible business opportunities, helping consumption.

ABB has operated it in the UAE for over 40 years. It currently operates from two corporate offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a manufacturing and servcie facility in the Al Quoz industrial area in Dubai.

At its Abu Dhabi office, ABB also operates a 1000 sq m ‘Learning Zone’ showcasing its products, services and solutions in a unique collaborative training environment, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
