I am proud to be Power Grids because it’s at the heart of the transformation that is shaping the future of sustainable energy -- that’s our way to save our planet.

"When I’m asked what inspires me at work, the answer is easy. For me, it is exciting to be part of a company that is making history in the world of electric energy.

We work for a “purpose” and renewable electric energy is our opportunity to save our planet. Hitachi ABB Power Grids is at the core of this opportunity with revolutionary solutions for electric transportation systems such as Grid-eMotion Fleet. I’ve had the chance to work in Business Development for such solutions and I’m deeply convinced that such game-changing innovation will be a great contributor to decarbonizing the world.

I joined the company in 2017, and since then I had the chance to know the company and to appreciate its culture, leveraging more than 100-year expertise all over the world. The company is ‘powered’ by team spirit, supported by great technical competence. But more than that, it’s a pleasure to work in teams with highly motivated, enthusiastic colleagues who are brave enough to embark in challenges that really put our company at the forefront of innovating our industry.

The coming together of the two giants, both ranked in the first 50 most innovative companies in the world, Hitachi ABB Power Grids is a tremendous opportunity for further innovating, both technologies and business. I’m used to work with different cultures but mainly of the western part of the world. I look forward to having the opportunity to engage with Japanese culture - that’s fascinating for me!"
