ABB’s U.S. motors and generators division named Jesse Henson president.

Henson, who’s been with the company for 23 years, leads the team responsible for marketing, designing and manufacturing ABB and Baldor-Reliance industrial electric motors in the U.S. He will also continue to be the global head of the NEMA motors product group.

“I am honored to lead the U.S. industrial motor business,” Henson says. “Taking care of customers is in our employees’ DNA, and we work hard every day to earn our customers’ business and their preference for our motors. I am committed to maintaining that focus and investing for the future.”

According to ABB, Henson began his career with the company – Baldor Electric Co. at the time – in 1997 as part of the drives and motion control team. His customer-first approach was critical to his success in roles in product management, marketing and sales, the company says.

Additionally, the company says his broad experience across motors and drives provides a strong level of understanding of customer and application needs, as well as buying preferences in the U.S. market.
