ZURICH (Reuters) – ABB has appointed industrial and software specialist Maryrose Sylvester as the new head of its U.S. business, the Swiss engineering company said on Wednesday, replacing company veteran Greg Scheu, who is due to retire.

Sylvester, a former General Electric executive, will also be responsible for the electrification business in ABB’s biggest market, it said.

During her career at GE, Sylvester held several executive-level positions, including president & CEO of GE Lighting, and head of GE’s joint venture with Japanese robot maker Fanuc.

She is due to take up her new role on Aug. 1. Scheu is due to retire at end of October.
