ABB announced Tyrone Varga’s appoitment as Head of its Large Motors & Generators Division in Canada.

Tyrone will be responsible for leading the sales and marketing for Large Motors and Generators and integrate with ABB’s existing Motion business team.

 “I am very excited to join the ABB team to help develop and grow the Large Motors & Generators business in Canada,” said Varga. “When they say the motor business is in your blood, they are right. Stepping away from it has driven me to appreciate the business even more. I look forward to connecting with old and new customers. I want our Canadian customers to know that we are always there whenever they need us.”

Varga brings over 20 years of experience in sales and market development in the electric motor industry in North America. His previous roles include senior positions at Shermco Industries and TECO-Westinghouse Motors in both Canada and the U.S.
