    ABB Appoints Franklin Sullivan to Lead U.S. Electrification Products Business

    January 14, 2016 - MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 14, 2016


      ABB today announced that Franklin Sullivan has assumed the role of executive vice president for its Electrification Products division in the United States. In addition, he assumes commercial leadership for the division across North America (Canada and Mexico). The division runs the low- and medium-voltage products businesses of ABB, for both ABB and Thomas & Betts branded portfolios.

      Franklin Sullivan joined Thomas & Betts in 2010, after a long career in the electrical products industry, in general management, operations, product management and marketing roles. He has led Thomas & Betts’ global sales and marketing activities as a senior vice president, based in Switzerland, for the last two years.

      Charles Treadway, who currently heads the global installation products business of ABB and the U.S. Electrification Products division, will leave ABB at the end of February to pursue an alternative career opportunity. A successor for his global role will be announced in due course.

      A spokesperson said, “Franklin brings strong industry experience and a deep knowledge of the U.S. electrical market. Having led the efforts to achieve double digit percentage growth of Thomas & Betts’ business outside North America, we are delighted to welcome him back to ABB in the United States.”

      Franklin will be based in Memphis, Tennessee, the headquarters for the Electrification Products division in the United States.
