GE Transportation Seeking New CEO

GE Transportation is seeking a new CEO after Jamie Miller was promoted to chief financial officer of parent company General Electric effective Nov. 1.

Miller replaces Jeffrey S. Bornstein, GE vice chair and chief financial officer.

In a news release, GE said that Miller became president and CEO of GE Transportation in October 2015 and led the business through difficult cycles in the mining and railroad industries.

As CEO of GE Transportation, she helped oversee GE Transportation’s Brilliant Factory initiative, the business’s digital transformation, and opened markets around the world and revenue opportunities outside the traditional verticals.

“Leading GE Transportation the last few years has been one of the greatest honors in my career,” Miller said in a statement. “We developed products and services our customers needed to move goods more efficiently, reliably, and safely in today’s challenging marketplace. The business also opened up exciting commercial opportunities in markets with tremendous growth potential like Egypt, India, and Kazakhstan.”

GE Transportation has a locomotive assembly plant in Lawrence Park, Pennsylvania, near Erie, and two engine plants in Grove City, Pennsylvania.

A new CEO of GE Transportation will be named in the coming weeks. In the interim, Pascal Schweitzer, GE Transportation’s global services leader, will serve as acting CEO.
