At GE Power & Water, Vic built a multi-billion dollar wind business from the ground up and more recently has transformed our thermal business with some of the strongest growth numbers that the business has seen in years. As GE continues its transformation to a Digital Industrial company, I am excited to see the next generation of breakthroughs developed under Vic’s leadership to make the world work better.”
Abate said, “It’s an incredible honor to succeed Mark Little who has built a research powerhouse for the 21st century world. As GE transforms itself to become the world’s premier Digital Industrial company, the global exchange of knowledge and technology will provide the core building blocks to make all of GE’s business greater together and provide better outcomes. I am excited about the opportunity to work with this tremendously talented team and to see what we can innovate and create next.”
