Leading Swiss tech firm ABB has announced the appointment of Mr. Noel Hupont as Managing Director and Head of the Electrification Business for Vietnam, effective from October.

Mr. Hupont’s strong leadership will drive the corporate strategy across businesses and underpin ABB’s growth momentum in Vietnam.

He succeeds Mr. Brian Hull, who has moved to lead the Power Grids (PG) business in Vietnam following ABB’s announcement of the planned divestment of the global PG business to Hitachi, to be completed by next June.

Mr. Hupont has been involved in different management roles in his 20 years at ABB Mexico and ABB France and most recently served as Local Division Manager for Electrification at ABB France. He brings a deep understanding of market trends and the challenges industries are facing.

In his new roles, he will continue to focus on strengthening ABB’s relationship with its customers and partners in the utility, industry, transportation, and infrastructure sectors, to help accelerate sustainable value creation for their businesses.

“I am excited to be here in a growing country which is experiencing fast paced urbanization,” Mr. Hupont said. “I look forward to working with the ABB team in Vietnam and our local customers and partners to explore opportunities in e-mobility, industrial automation, and digitalization.”

“As a pioneering technology leader, ABB will continue to bring innovative solutions to help customers achieve energy efficiency and optimize productivity and reduce environmental impacts. We are committed to supporting a safe, smart, and sustainable future for Vietnam.”

He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Les Compagnons Du Devoir in France and an MBA from the University of Barcelona in Spain.
