Andrea De Mezzo, Switzerland

I am proud to be Power Grids because we have an essential responsibility in supporting the world’s energy transition to sustainable electricity.

As part of the Power+ Graduate Program, I am discovering the company through three six-months assignments in different teams and locations. I had the chance to work as a project manager for gas-insulated switchgear in Zurich and to contribute to the development of the local unit’s strategy in Tokyo. I’m now on my final assignment, working on product management for service in our Grid-eMotion portfolio.

During my work in Switzerland and Japan, I encountered different cultural environments, but a strong and consistent focus on integrity and inclusion, which is what I love the most about the company. Through working on different assignments, I was given the chance to focus on multiple areas and see where I perform best.

After supporting the expansion of renewable energy sources in Switzerland and Japan, I am now happy to focus on e-mobility, which I believe has a strong potential to make our world a better place. The electrification of public transport has tangible effects on local communities around the world, and I am proud to be part of this revolution.

I look forward to more productive experiences at Power Grids, especially with our future together with Hitachi. The joint venture is a strong investment in sustainability and a commitment to becoming more globally focused. I am excited to be part of this transformation, and I look forward to a rich exchange of technology as well as cultural and business practices.
