At the coming annual general meeting (AGM) on March 29, 2018, all ABB Board of Directors members will stand for reelection, with the exceptions of Ying Yeh and Louis R.

Additionally, following a careful selection process, the Board of Directors has nominated three new candidates for seats on the board – Jennifer Xin-Zhe Li, former CFO of Baidu and current head of Baidu Capital, Geraldine Matchett, Global CFO of Royal DSM, and Gunnar Brock, the former President and CEO of Atlas Copco Group. The shareholders will vote on each candidate for election to the board at the AGM.

“We are pleased to nominate Jennifer, Geraldine and Gunnar to ABB’s Board of Directors,” said Peter Voser, Chairman of the Board. “Each of these exceptional individuals brings relevant, long-term experience and judgment to the role. At the same time, I would like to thank Ying Yeh and Lou Hughes for their outstanding contributions to our work in the past. Lou has been Chairman of the Finance, Audit and Compliance Committee and offered years of long-standing service for which we are very grateful.”
