The top 25 moments of 2013

The countdown begins on Monday, November 18th - ABB Conversations

2013 was a year filled with innovations and changes that marked a new chapter for our company. So we would like to take the opportunity to close out the year by featuring 25 of ABB's most important moments.

Why 25? We are celebrating ABB’s 25th anniversary this year, and what better way to honor our silver jubilee than by highlighting 25 remarkable stories?

The top moment of 2013 was undoubtedly the appointment of our new CEO, Ulrich Spiesshofer, who took the helm from Joe Hogan in September. The news was welcomed both inside and outside ABB because Ulrich had successfully led ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion (DM) division for nearly four years, doubling the division’s revenues by organic and inorganic means and improving the operating margin significantly.

Paying tribute to Joe Hogan, Ulrich said his predecessor was leaving a robust, well-managed company, with strong positions in many exciting markets and a compelling value proposition for customers. Our new CEO said the focus going forward would be on capturing profitable growth through better penetration in existing ABB markets, innovation and expansion.
