Tarak Mehta will leave ABB at the end of July this year

ABB has announced that Tarak Mehta, President Motion Business Area and Member of the Executive Committee, has decided to leave ABB since he has accepted the role as CEO of another company. Tarak will leave ABB at the end of July this year.

“Throughout his 26 year career at ABB, Tarak has demonstrated exceptional leadership. As Executive Committee member and Business Area President, Tarak has contributed to achieving a record high operational EBITA margin in the past year in our Motion business and the Business Area is well-positioned to contribute to ABB’s higher financial targets going forward. Before that, he played a key role in further strengthening our leading position in the United States, ABB’s largest market, for our Electrification business,” said CEO Björn Rosengren. “We thank Tarak for his outstanding contribution to the success of our company and wish him all the best for both his professional and personal future endeavors.”

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to everyone I have worked with over the years. Thank you for your support, efforts, guidance and the results we have achieved together. It has been a wonderful journey of 26 years filled with challenges and opportunities as well as personal and professional growth. I wish the ABB team a continued bright future,” said Tarak Mehta.

A search process for the position of President, Motion Business Area will be launched shortly.
